2K Games has announced XCOM, the re-imagining of a classic video franchise, currently in development at 2K Marin (BioShock 2) exclusively for Xbox 360 and PC.

XCOM hopes to combine the strategic core of the groundbreaking franchise with a suspense-filled narrative, set within a first-person shooter experience.

"With BioShock 2, the team at 2K Marin proved themselves as masters of first-person, suspenseful storytelling, and with XCOM they will re-imagine and expand the rich lore of this revered franchise," said Christoph Hartmann, president of 2K. "Players will explore the world of XCOM from an immersive new perspective and experience firsthand the fear and tension of this gripping narrative ride."

XCOM puts players directly into the shoes of an FBI agent tasked with identifying and eliminating the growing threat of an unknown enemy. By setting the game in a first-person perspective, 2K says players will be able to feel the tension and fear that comes with combating a faceless enemy that is violently probing and plotting its way into our world.

No release date has been announced.

Starting to see why MS felt so confident about their line up. I'm sold too but I can't see this arriving in 2010.
