Consoles might pull more money in general. But XCOM isn't targeting the console audience. Sure they might make up some players, and be hyped for it, but, considering they had to pull the release date back 2 months, coding it for consoles wasn't really on their mind. They can only spend so much money on a game prior to release, so probably didn't want to wait until the console version was ready as well.
When you consider how hard XCOM 2 is to run on a general PC, (mine will run at 30fps+ when not loading the map on High, not Max, graphical settings). It isn't installed on the SSD though. Without some optimisation, I don't think consoles would be able to handle it on the higher graphical settings that are expected from "next gen".
Look for playthroughs of XCOM:EW or EU. Almost all completed ones are on PC. The PC buyers simply make up too much of the majority, so they get priority.
If this was a fps, or a different type of game, then you might see more focus on consoles.
Anyway, 2K and Firaxis mainly release games for PC with only a few console versions. Like Civilisation Revolution which is so dumbed down it's laughable.
I do have XCOM: Enemy Unknown on my 360. The mission loading takes around 10 to 15 seconds, it looks terrible compared to the PC version, soldier moving is clunky and it's hard to specify the height of a movement (even with using the bumpers/triggers, whichever thing it was). The AI takes longer to do their thing.
You also need to consider that updating their game costs them money. It's cheaper to do a PC update than an XBOX one (not sure about PS though).
They might make money from a console release, so maybe there will be one before the end if the year.
