There was some speculation that, since it was a 2K game and we hadn't heard from the man since BioShock, what's become the upcoming Spec Ops title would be the work of Ken Levine and 2K Boston. Well, it's not.
Some had guessed that the initial Spec Ops: The Line trailer was hinting at something more than just your standard modern day shooting affair. And hey, with strangely decomposed bodies and city-sized sand traps, it still is. But with an official name and now an official developer, it's not an X-Com game, and it has nothing to do with BioShock, either.
