Following the news that 2K Australia’s studio head, Martin Slater, had resigned in January of this year, rumours flew that the developer’s much-maligned XCOM reboot might be changing direction.
According to a 2K spokesperson’s statement given to Joystiq, this will not be the case. “While we can confirm that Martin Slater is no longer with the studio, there have been no changes to the way in which XCOM is being developed,” the statement reads. “[The project] continues to be led by creative director Jonathan Pelling.”
XCOM is still planned for a PC, Xbox 360 and PS3 release and is still looking like one of the most in recent memory. The game does not, as yet, have a release date.
