Yes, the geniuses behind Sid Meier's Civilization franchise and Sid Meier's Pirates will be re-making the classic X-COM you know and love. Here is what Steve Martin; President of Firaxis Games has to say about the recent announcement:
The shooter from 2K Marin came under a lot of scrutiny for abandoning the gameplay format of its predecessors. According to GI, it will feature destructible environments, a real-time strategic POV, and turn-based combat. This game will be coming to Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, and PC this fall; which means I just burned another $60. TOTALLY WORTH IT! Here is the cover from GI.
