XCOM Creator Reveals New Game


   XCOM creator, Julian Gollop, has announced his next game. It's called Phoenix Point, and it will offer turn-based tactical combat with an overall "world-based" strategy element. He made the announcement via Twitter, also directing fans to a newly founded website for the upcoming game.
The website doesn't suggest any information about Phoenix Point, but it does feature the image above, displaying what appears to be the profile of a face and some other mysterious elements.

     Phoenix Point is in being developed at Snapshot Games, founded in 2013 by Gollop and industry veteran David Kaye. The studio's first game was Chaos Reborn, a sequel to Gollop's 1985 turn-based tactics game Chaos. This game was successfully funded on Kickstarter in April 2014. Snapshot has not said yet if it plans to also launch a crowdfunding campaign for Phoenix Point.
