After months of putting PC commanders through the wringer, XCOM 2 is finally coming to console. Given that we weren’t sure it was coming at all, we’re calling this one better late than never.
This game is soo good. Glad more people will be able to play this now. Seriously they stretched this only PC thing for long, and seem pretty adamant to a point I thought this day will never come. So glad it did though. Out on September 6.
I was literally just whingeing about it's supposed exclusivity a few hours ago... can't say I'm suprised - the last game (deservedly) ended up on just about every available platform - I just didn't think it'd take them this long to announce console versions. Best news I've heard all day!
I believe part of this "no console versions planned PC only" talk was they originally opted not to go console because of the lack of mod support in the previous gen given Xcom 2 is heavily supported with mods. So when Fallout 4 came forward with getting the console makers to support mods I have a feeling that may have set wheels in motion to re-look at doing a console version.
Yeah for me its the best game released this year. This game deserves all the extra sales on consoles.
it is awesome, glad more can play it now.
It makes perfect sense for a console release being as many PS and Xbox gamers enjoyed the original
Awesome game. Advent really pissed me off in compared to EXALT.
Great timing for the announcement what with the first game recently becoming backwards compatible on Xbox One and being this months Game with Live.
Probably not coincidence, games with gold games are often used to promote new games
ikr i don't have to hook up my 360 to play it now. you did not say anything wrong but got more down votes. must be you said something good about xbox.
This is one of the two games I play on PC. When this and darkest dungeon are on ps4 I probably won't even turn on my PC.
I use my pc for browsing...
I have a phone and tablets for bullshitting.
Theres really only a couple great exclusives on consoles too. PC has more this year than both consoles combined though lol. And not to mention how much better multiplats are handled on PC.
Have at it boss lol. I'm just saying for me personally. Those are the only 2 games I play on PC. I bought a PC for xcom 2 lol. Everything else I have on PC I also have on console and would rather play them on console for my tv. (Don't starve, invisible inc, mark of the ninja, banner saga). Oh sim city is another I play on PC, haven't in awhile though.
I game on both PC and console and don't make me laugh. PC exclusives this year and the next is NOTHING compared to console exclusives.
And IOS has even more exclusives, i guess it's the best platform right? PS4 has awesome exclusives this year, not our problem if you don't have one and need to bring shovelware games.
I have a tablet to play IOS games.
who plays vanilla xcom mods are were xcom shines
this person who plays vanilla everything because I don't care about mods... you're that person that would make that blanket statement towards any game just because "no mods"
say the ps4/xone owner going crazy over mods support i thought you guys never liked mods lol it when you guys finally get a taste then you start saying we love the mods
can you not read? I already stated I've never been a fan of mods
i did read what you said that's the reason i replied. you wouldn't know what you are missing until you try it your self
I disagree, Vanilla Xcom 2 is perfect loved it, tried mods with it its meh then went back to vanilla
"i did read what you said that's the reason i replied. you wouldn't know what you are missing until you try it your self" except that's not what you said. you said "say the ps4/xone owner going crazy over mods support i thought you guys never liked mods" and what in point in time did you ever decide to reply with that based on what I said? I said I don't like mods, you said I do. stop confusing yourself and stop answering to things YOU made up
Better late than never,
The description makes it sound like it took years to come over, it only launched 4 months ago
Hell yeah!!! My heart was broken when they first stated it was PC only. I almost drowned in my own man tears. Now jumping up and doing the splits mid air filled with joy. Excuse me fellas. I'm just beyond happy right now.
I was assuring people that it was likely going to get ported to consoles anyway as I didn't see any Financial viable reason why they would not bring it to multiple platforms. I always felt that the PC version was very likely funding the ports the Xbox one and PlayStation 4.
Well there it is
HALLELUJAH! The first game made me a fan of the genre. I know it's better to play these type of games on pc but my PC sucks.
Try jagged alliance 2. Can run on a toaster and is a great game.
The mods for JA2: Unfinished Business make the games sooo much better, with way more weapon modifications available. So good.
Haha well now that I remember, my first strategy game was infact Aliens vs Predator. I got consumed by that game and after that I played some Command and Conquer games, good times indeed. I haven't played a strategy game for a while. Last one I played was Total War Rome 2 which ran like sh*t and made me despise PC gaming. I already have Xcom Enemy Unknown on PC but I doubt my laptop could run the sequel. I might have to invest in a decent gaming rig soon.
It's a great game. Actually one of my favorite games on PC.
I'm sure console gamer will enjoy this.
I really liked the last one. One of the few games I have beaten on X1. I just built a PC so I may just buy it on Steam once they have it on sale.
Dont wait dude, its an amazing game. Go to G2A.com and buy games, find key sites. PC games are always on sale lol. Currently $60 on Steam, Sale will bring it to what? $45? $30.62 right here https://www.g2a.com/xcom-2-...
@Nowitzki THX for the tip I never knew this site and others existed ..like Kinguin. Wish I knew a week or so ago as I would have saved at least $30 on 2 games I purchased...one was $15 I could of gotten for $3. Another was $20 I could have gotten it for like $5. I just purchased Outlast for $3 (never played it but heard good things) and GONE HOME $3 (short but good game (story)....glad I didnt pay regular price) PS XCOM 2 I may buy or wait for it to drop below $20 and get it in the fall when I have more time.....hmmm that may not be a good idea....Titanfall 2 and BF1 coming!
Aw man, no reason to own a PC anymore. Since all games are coming to console anyway. Best combo this gen would be Wii U and 3DS = all exclusives. Wake up people, its about time. PC is cancer to gaming and should die already. /s this comment was sponsored by *typicalps4fanboylogic* we hope you had fun
You just sound salty. How did you even come up with that comment? Everyone is having a adult conversation here, and you just had to come in and be immature about the "console war". Get outta here.
/s whoa whut that is what sony fanboys tell me about xbox. Totally fine on that site and even gets ton of upvotes. Guess I didnt get how the hate really works. Need to bash some xbox moar. Man xbox so bad its cancer.
@Tobesan No, you just need to stop with the hate for each side. Your comment was unprovoked, so I don't understand what made you feel the need to play the victim card.
I agree with above comments, masterpieces shouldn't be restricted to 1 platform. Its always a good thing when more poeple gain access to a great game.
Already whooped this game on Steam but definitely going to get this again for PS4. And zero surprise that it comes to consoles...I just couldn't wait.
Whoop our consoles friends... As they usually are not very good at strategy games lol.
Salt ^ What kinda comment is that? Stay salty friend
I knew it!!
knew it was coming, just thought we'd have to wait longer! day 1 buy for me
Great game on PC which I still haven't finished yet. The game is brutal and much harder than the previous XCOM. Good luck console gamers you'll need it :D
Its so addicting to set up a perfect surprise attack...... to only get owned anyways.
That sounds perfect. XCOM was one of the very few SP games I have beaten. Loved the story and the game set up.
And now my E3 is complete. I don't have a PC that can run this game which shocked me to be honest given I could run Xcom Enemy Within fine so I had been hopeful they would bring this to console. Now they are and now I can continue to enjoy my favorite IP of all time.
Everyone saw this coming :3
YAY. Patience pays off. I am so happy! (this is genuine folks, no sarcasm.).
Glad to see it, but didn't they first say that it could only be done on PC?
They focused on the PC version first so that consoles dont hold it back at all and then optimize the game for consoles. imo every multiplat should mainly focus on the PC version because there is no limits there like there is on consoles.
Most PC gamers rigs are about the same as consoles or lower. Devs shouldn't bother with the low percent minority who has silly expensive rigs
Oh man... This is one of my most anticipated games, and has been long before they even announced it officially. I really liked what I played of Xcom, when I bought it on launch for PS3, but really fell in love with it on Vita. So excited to finally get my hands on Xcom 2. What I've read about how they flip the script on Xcom's position in the war sounds really intriguing. GREAT NEWS!

For some reason as I was scrolling I read Socom 2 :(
I knew it, that's why I didn't care it was going to PC at first. VITA please. The first one was great on it.
The Vita is dead, get over it. If it's not a weeaboo title you'll never see it.
It is? Is that why it's still selling and getting games? Interesting. Also, I could name plenty of non-"weeaboo" games but it would be a wasted effort on a shit-tier troll such as yourself (2/10).
What is a weeaboo title ?
