XCOM Enemy Unknown [Oct 2012]
Release Date: October 9, 2012.
This is a true re-imagining of the cult classic turn based tactical strategy game of old (UFO Enemy Unknown), and it's being developed by Firaxis of Civilisation fame. It's actually the first game they're doing without Sid Meier's name in the title which I found oddly facinating in it's own right.
