The future of 2K Games' XCOM-based tactical shooter is once again up in the air following the closure of both its official website and YouTube videos.

Attempts to access xcom.com return a 404 error, while two previously publicly listed videos for the game on YouTube have been switched to private.

The 2K Marin developed game was announced way back in 2010 as a 1960s FPS, but has been delayed several times since. The game – currently believed to be a tactical third-person shooter – is set for release anytime from now until the end of March 2014.

Kotaku recently noted that the game may be undergoing significant re-branding, with domain registrations pointing to a new title of "The Bureau".

2K told Polygon that it "has no comment about the sites being down today."

^ That makes sense. At least... it's what I would do, in their situation.

My guess is that XCOM Enemy Unkown sold a lot more then they initially expected. They saw that more hype was generating around the turn based strategy rather then the shooter, which lead to greater then expected sales, which could of been to enough justify a sequel. So they decided to re-brand this game, which was already out of the public eyesight in order to not confuse the brand.
