Take-Two and Firaxis had September 6 pegged for XCOM 2 to invade Xbox One and PlayStation 4 on September 6, but Take-Two president Karl Slatoff announced that the game has been delayed by three weeks during Take-Two's quarterly earnings call earlier today.
Slatoff explained that Firaxis will use the three-week delay to "ensure the game is fully polished at launch and meets the team's high standards" (via Polygon).
Console owners have a lot to look forward to. XCOM 2 received high marks when it was released on PC earlier this year. And look at it this way: the game wasn't originally planned for consoles, so a delay of less than a month is better than no game at all.
XCOM 2 will release on Xbox One and PS4 on September 27 in North America. International regions get it a few days later on September 30. Firaxis will continue to support the PC version of the game with free and paid DLC.

I hope they patch the pc version to support gamepads as well.
Really good game
