It only takes a single tweet to bring joy to many with the announcement of a new game, just as it only takes a single tweet to crush those same people’s hopes and dreams. 2K’s UK PR team have managed to roll both of these feats into one, with the announcement of a fully fledged sequel to 2012’s successful reboot of the XCOM franchise.

That’s right, XCOM 2 is on the way and it’s coming out in November of this year. However, this looks like it will be a PC exclusive which feels like a backwards step, considering that XCOM: Enemy Unknown and its standalone expansion were both on console and seemed to be rather popular.
Either way, expect to see more of this at E3 later this month.
UPDATE: IGN have posted a cheeky cinematic trailer.
