    Being one of my favorite games (I wish I could say series, but some of them stunk) ever, this excites me to no end.

    X-Com confirmed for 360/PC, Firaxis working on turn-based sequel? - News at GameSpot

    An FPS, and possibly a new turned based? If either one of them turn out to be good i'll be in heaven. Preferably the turn based, but Fallout 3 showed how they don't have to stick 100% to their roots to make a great game.

    I would love a turn based tactical shooter with cutting edge graphics, I have spent more time playing xcom than probably any other game and it could definitely use a facelift.

    Cool! Really cool!

    On a slighty different subject, does any remember the name of that X-Com Squad-Base FPS was called? The game was canceled and never came out but any happen to know the name?

    I'm still waiting for the X-Com inspired game, Heavy Duty...

    I haven't heard anything new about that game in YEARS.

    X-Com Alliance.

    There was a proper X-Com game being worked on at the time as well called Genesis, but that died at the same time as Alliance when Hasbro Interactive went tits up and was sold to Infogrammes.

    I saw the E3 Gameplay footage for the new X-Com game. I was such a X-Com nerd back when it was UFO: Enemy Unknown on the Amiga CD32.

    XCOM's E3 demo declassified | Joystiq

    I really would love a HD remake of the original too. Looks like they've Made the gameplay like a FPS but with strategy and lite RPG elements. I am looking forward to this.
