In April 2010, 2K Marin announced they were working on re-imagining of X-COM, relabeled as XCOM, to be released for the PC, PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360. It is described as a tactical and strategic first-person shooter supposed to combine elements from the original X-COM alongside a new setting and viewpoint while keeping some main concepts from the original game series. The setting is getting a complete overhaul and now based in the early 1960s, with the XCOM being a U.S. federal agency. Originally planned to be released in 2011, the game is currently scheduled for 2013 at the earliest.

In January 2012, Firaxis Games (led by MicroProse co-founder Sid Meier) revealed to be developing a PC, PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 strategy game XCOM: Enemy Unknown, a "re-imagination" of UFO: Enemy Unknown that is going to feature real-time strategic view, turn-based combat and destructible tactical environments more in vein of the original X-COM game. It is also set in a more contemporary setting than the XCOM game by 2K Marin. XCOM: Enemy Unknown was released on October 9, 2012.
