XCOM 3 – What’s the status & When is it coming?

XCOM 3 hasn't been announced, but it appears to be under development. Fans of the XCOM series have been waiting patiently for the next installment in the series for over six years now.

Community members were kept happy and satisfied by XCOM 2 DLC such as War of the Chosen, but they're ready for another full-blown game.


Since Firaxis Games is working on Marvel's Midnight Suns, we can only speculate about what an XCOM 3 would look like and when it might be released. Here's what we have to say about it.

XCOM 3 Release Date

Because of the current state of the industry and the high number of people who work from home, it is likely that it will be tough to work on any large-scale titles at this time. Still, it's possible that XCOM 3 is already in the works at this point.

The search for new Firaxis employees to assist with the development of a new XCOM game seems to be underway both in early 2019 and late 2019.


In early 2019, Jake Solomon, creative director of Firaxis and the man responsible for XCOM and XCOM 2, posted on Twitter that the company was looking for new employees.

The official Firaxis homepage included a job advertisement later in the year seeking a worldbuilder to “take the XCOM series to the next level.” The position was filled later in the year.


Chimera Squad was recently launched as an XCOM spin-off, thus we don't know for sure if these commercials apply to XCOM 3.

No one has said yet if Chimera Squad is a preview of what's to come in the XCOM 3 game or if it's an attempt to get anything out now that the gaming industry, much like everywhere else, is probably staring at endless delays in schedule for everything that's currently being worked on.

Since Marvel's Midnight Suns is being developed by Firaxis, the third installment may still be a while off.

Even Nevertheless, XCOM 3 is very certainly already in development, although no one can predict with certainty when it will be released.

Is there a trailer?

There is currently no trailer for XCOM 3 available.

Latest News

Firaxis hasn't released any official information about XCOM 3 at this time. However, throughout the month of September, an unknown and unannounced XCOM game was discovered in the NVIDIA GeForce Now database.


NVIDIA stated that, while the titles on the list were legitimate, some of them were merely speculations and rumors.

Nothing has been confirmed as of yet, and Firaxis has made no statement on the matter.
