Domain registrations hint at new name for other XCOM.

2K Games’ oft-delayed XCOM first-person shooter, rumored to have gone third-person, might not be an XCOM game anymore. Domain registrations discovered by Superannuation seem to hint at a new name: The Bureau

The publisher registered the following domains last month:,, and

Where’s XCOM fit into these registations? It’s set in 1962 and puts players in the shoes of an FBI agent.

    This is going to be horrible. :(

  • The funny thing, I bet they didn’t expect XCOM: Enemy Unknown to be so popular so they renamed this title.

  • Sevyne

    Good. This game seriously had no right to be called XCOM.

    • DrForbidden

      Well, to be fair, XCOM: Enemy Unknown had no right to be called XCOM either…

      • Sevyne

        I won’t completely disagree with that, but at least they tried and half succeeded.

      • There is no way nothing have been exactly as it was in this market. Besides that, it done a lot of things faithfully. The people who made it was huge XCOM fans so its not like they butchered it.

    a wise choice. xcom and FPS/TPS simply doesn’t need to go together.

  • Warboss Aohd

    probably a good idea.
