Julian Gollop, creator of the original X-COM, has announced the next title from Snapshot Games—the studio he founded in 2013 with David Kaye to develop Chaos Reborn. Phoenix Point, their latest project, is world-based strategy with turn-based tactical combat.

And that’s all we know for the moment, but Chaos Reborn will be a tough act to follow. It proved the welcome return of a tactical classic that demanded as much of your poker face as it did your strategy. I’m intrigued to see what an old hand will do with a wholly new game.
