XCOM has made its name in the industry by becoming one of the most exciting ‘Turn-Base Real Time Strategy Game’ and boy do these gave have some fans. So, it makes sense that the developers start thinking about the newest installment of their franchise, XCOM 3.
The plan is to launch the game for the PS5 and Xbox Scarlett consoles which, as rumors have it, not that far along. Now to make a game for the future generation consoles, the developers will have to up their game and that’s what this job posting is all about.
