X-COM: Alliance is a cancelled FPS / Strategy game that was in development in 1999 / 2000 by Hasbro Interactive’s Chipping Sodbury office in the UK and later by their studio in Hunt Valley, USA. As we can read in Wikipedia, unlike other games in the X-COM series, most of which were turn-based strategy, the game had the player assume the role of a trooper in an X-COM squad and through the first-person perspective of a squaddie, to fight the hostile alien invaders. At the end of 1999, the Hunt Valley studio survived the first round of studio closures enacted by Hasbro Interactive when they decided to scale back their efforts in the video game industry. Later in 2000, however, the Hunt Valley studio was also closed down and the game was “shelved”.
