To draw a parallel
"Will we have random loot drops in Diablo 3? -Well, we're drawing very heavy inspiration from Diablo 2 and 1"
It's basically a given that this feature must be in the game or it will not in fact be a Diablo game. Same applies with XCOM. (Obviously they have been very clear about the loot drop system in D3, this just as a hypothetical situation).
The concern here is that all this secrecy around it is going to mean that it is perhaps implemented in a different way from the original.. It's still there, but different.
It is a bit odd. Maybe they've got some amazing reveal concerning it - I don't know.

As Zxc said, its all part of the fun!
