Actually, the shooter isn't "based on XCom" at all. It's neither based on the same story or setting or gameplay. The aliens are different, the people you play are different, the world is different.

The problem is that they bought a title for a game.

Had they built this as a real prequel, that actually ties into the backstory of XCom, kinda like "XCom: Origins" I am sure people could have swallowed it. XCom already had a couple of games that left the original formula, but at least they were based on the same world.
