    Sadly I can't support the development of a game like phoenix point when it breaks it's pledge on crowdfunding, if you are going to advertise for a platform (steam) from the get go then fulfill your deal. This shouldn't put off other people if they want to fund this game still but be aware of it's changes.

    The german pc magazine "PCGames" has an Article about Firaxis recruiting new manpower, with a very high probability that those are to be working on XCOM3 :D
    Firaxis sucht Mitarbeiter - anscheinend für XCOM 3
    Kommt XCOM 3? Es scheint so, denn darauf deutet eine Stellenausschreibung des Entwicklerstudios Firaxis hin.
