XCOM 2's run as a PC exclusive will end in September with a new-gen console release.

The port will be developed by FIraxis in conjunction with The Workshop, which previously assisted with porting The Evil Within and Brothers: A Tale of Two Sons.

XCOM: Enemy Unknown was a massive success on previous-gen consoles, and many players expressed frustration when the sequel launched as a PC exclusive.

At the time, it seemed a console port was unlikely, given the well-reviewed sequel's specifically PC-optimised user interface.

Creative director Jake Solomon admitted in the announcement that "we've known console fans have been clamouring to play the game too."

XCOM 2 hits PS4 and Xbox One on September 9th.
