Could other franchise use the XCOM formula to success? Do what Mario + Rabbids: Kingdom Battle did?
When a game series is good, really good, it inspires others to try and match what it does. Some with good success, some with great success, and others that shouldn’t have been made at all. Last year, Mario + Rabbids Kingdom Battle took the XCOM formula, added its own flair and charm, and made it its own. So much so that the creative director for XCOM said he took notes on the game and will implement some things in the next XCOM title.
But, that raises the question, what other games could benefit from an XCOM style spinoff?
