In a sad turn of events it seems as though Fireaxis is finally retiring the multiplayer aspects of XCOM 2 with both the multiplayer battles and the challenge modes being removed from the game on March 28th for PC. This update will remove all ways to connect online in a multiplayer setting for the game as is apparently due to the fact that they want to focus their resources elsewhere, makes sense I suppose.
To many however this is a sign that perhaps the studio is also working on the fabled XCOM 3 as these new “focused resources” may very well be going into the next entry in the series. I certainly hope this is the case as I adore XCOM and being able to play a new entry in the alien-killing tactical game series would be a lovely surprise to make this year better. I just hope it is that and this new Marvel XCOM-like game doesn’t end up taking all the time and resources away from the Fireaxis team.
That’s all for now, and as always. It’s not just a game, It’s a Life.
