2K’s Advent Future Revealed As PC-Only XCOM 2

Sorry console fans, it looks like you're not going to be fighting against the Advent forces. XCOM 2 was announced today exclusively for PC, picking up 20 years after the conclusion of Enemy Within.

Although some fans may be disappointed that Epic Games has cancelled Gears of War: Exile, there's news that the company is currently working on a PC-only project.

Joystiq reports that company president Mike Capps and lead designer Cliff Bleszinski told a panel at PAX East that Epic is working on a PC-only title that Joystiq says is previously unannounced.
