The Bureau is 'an evolution,' not reboot of XCOM

After years of silence, the XCOM FPS has resurfaced as a tactical cover-based third-person shooter known as The Bureau: XCOM Declassified. Yet, in spite of a new perspective and a new title, 2K Games insists that their re-revealed game is not a reboot. Instead, it's simply an "evolution" of the long-in-development game.

"The game has not restarted over and over again," 2K Marin VP Alyssa Finley told Shacknews in an interview. "If you look back at the game we showed in 2010, you'll see some of the same enemies, you can see some of the same teammates. This really is an evolution." (2K Games, 2K Marin, Industry, PC, PS3, The Bureau: XCOM Declassified, Xbox 360)

Seconded. It sounds awesome and other superlatives.

More like a devolution.

But it use to be.

Then gamers complained, devs surprisingly gave them what they wanted, and now emotions have cooled down enough so that gamers can look at this FPS for any merits it might have. Now that its an offshoot of the series rather than a replacement, and a sequel to the other turn based game is all but announced.
