Xbox owners are in for a treat with XCOM 2 by Firaxis Games, as the tactical RPG is now offered at an incredibly low price. But hurry up, as the offer listed on Microsoft’s Xbox Marketplace will be ending soon. It would be a pity to miss out on this great deal, so grab it now while you can.
The 2012 X-COM series reboot entitled XCOM: Enemy Unknown, developed by Firaxis Games and published by 2K Games, was praised upon its release. It earned an outstanding 90 from Metacritic, and it also won numerous Game of the Year awards. Gamers now have the opportunity to acquire XCOM 2 for a great deal.

For a limited time, XCOM 2 is available on the Xbox Marketplace for only $2.99, a drastic reduction from its usual price of $59.99. The Digital Deluxe Edition is also on sale, now for $7.49. Unfortunately, the XCOM 2 Collection bundle is still full price at $99.99. You can find the deal here.
When XCOM 2 was released in 2016, it enjoyed the benefit of being available on upgraded hardware for PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One in comparison to PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360. This title was highly acclaimed, with the Xbox One version of the game earning an 87 on Metacritic. Additionally, the turn-based tactical game was nominated for Game of the Year and PC Game of the Year at the 2016 Golden Joystick Awards, Best Strategy Game at The Game Awards, and Strategy/Simulation Game of the Year at the 20th Annual D.I.C.E. Awards. This was in spite of Elden Ring doing better at the Golden Joystick Awards in 2022.
It is unclear what the future of the XCOM series holds. 2K Games reported contentment with the sales of XCOM in its 2016 financial release, yet there has been nothing formal mentioned on the matter of a potential XCOM 3. There are many creative ideas from fans on where the XCOM series should go next.
After XCom 2, Firaxis Games did not slow their production of games. The developer’s next release was the acclaimed Sid Meier’s Civilization VI. Then in 2022, the studio put out Marvel’s Midnight S uns for console and PC.
XCom 2 can be played on Mobile, PC, PlayStation 4, Switch, and Xbox One platforms.
