Kotaku US is reporting that XCOM, which is being developed by 2K Marin, with part of the team based in Canberra, has been delayed past its initial released date of March 2012 into the next financial year.
The specific dates are vague, with no more details being given, but this essentially means that the game will come out anytime between April 2012 and March 2013.
Earlier reports from insiders stated that 2K Marin in Canberra had made up to 15 of its staff redundant. Some reports coming out of the studio have stated that the game is currently going through a difficult period of development.
We contacted 2K locally to ask about the situation, only to be told that 2K doesn’t comment on rumours.
