2K Games has announced that XCOM, which had previously been a PC and Xbox 360 title, is currently in development for the PlayStation 3. The shooter’s release date has also been confirmed.
Developer 2K confirmed that XCOM will be heading to the PlayStation 3, Xbox 360, as well as PC on March 6th in the United States. The shooter will release in European territories a few days later on March 9th, 2012.
2K boss Christoph Hartmann said on the announcement:
Every time I think of XCOM it gives me the chills, the kind that come from standing witness to the corruption and destruction of your world as you stand powerless to prevent it. I’m pleased to announce today that we will be bringing this experience to an even broader audience when XCOM comes to the Xbox 360, PS3 and PC in March 2012.
