A new expansion for XCOM 2 is rumored to be codenamed "TLE" and on its way according to a post on ResetEra.

XCOM 2 is a game about the Extraterrestrial Combat Unit, an elite group of soldiers and scientists charged with fending off an alien invasion. Unfortunately, their worst fears have come to pass and the aliens have won, scattering this fighting unit to the winds. In a last-ditch effort to defeat the vile creatures who have taken over the world, the XCOM unit has commandeered an alien spaceship to act as a mobile base while they do their damnedest to fight back against the colonizers before it's too late.

The War of the Chosen expansion for XCOM 2 was revealed during last year's PC Gaming Show at E3 2017 and it was packed with a significant amount of new content for players to enjoy. Since then, we haven't heard much in the way of new content from the developers. With E3 2018 on the horizon, it seems that we may be getting yet another batch of content for the game.

The ResetEra post links to a Reddit thread which has an image showing "XCom 2 - TLE" and "XCom 2 - TLE Content". This is further supported by a recent change made to the game noted on Steam DB and a build having been moved along to Quality Assurance, indicating that it is a product receiving finishing touches prior to release.

That's all we seem to know for the moment. Considering the fact that E3 2018 is approaching, we may very well see something new for XCOM 2 this year. We've reached out to 2K for comment and we'll update this piece if any new information about this rumor comes to light. If you don't already own XCOM 2, you can buy it for the PC via Steam or the Humble Store [Affiliate Link] for $59.99 or your regional equivalent.
