While Firaxis mentioned that console versions might happen in the future, XCOM 2 is focused on PC for its launch, set for this November. As a result, there will be a proper modding kit for the commuity to play with and to expand the base game.

The development team also worked hard to improve randomization. Procedural generation will make sure that levels are always at least slightly different from each other, thanks to varying objectives, dynamic time of day and weather. Moreover, floors and structures are now destructible.

XCOM 2 has a strong PC focus and will ship with modding tools

XCOM 2 will feature multiplayer too, but details on what’s changed in this mode from Enemy Unknown/Within are still scarce.
