Wouldn't the 50s setting of the XCOM FPS be perfect for the old TBS gameplay

I ran into the name of the XCOM FPS reboot today. While I couldn't be more interested in what they've shown gameplay-wise it got me thinking that I really like the 1950s post-Roswell setting and atmosphere of it all and how great it would work combined with the traditional TBS gameplay that the modern Firaxis XCOM employs so well. The Sectoids would fit the era very well and I can already see a squad of soldiers disembarking from a Korean War era helicopter (a Chickasaw for example) at the edge of a dusty town in the American Southwest. No need for 2001-like monoliths or the weird modern-looking aliens they added in the most recent redesign.
