Where are the savegames located in x-com enemy unknown?

I have a lot of savegames and I’d like to clean them up. Ingame you can only delete them one by one. There is a folder “Saves” in the steamapps folder (I have the steam game) but there are no files in there.
Am I looking at the wrong location?

I am currently even facing problems. Not all savegames are offered in the menu – probably because I have so many.

  • What is the benefit of launching a satellite “a few days before the monthly report”
  • Can you reject Slingshot DLC mission first month and choose it next month?
  • Is there any way to guide what class a rookie will become?
  • How can I reduce panic in a country?
  • Should I keep Alien Containment?
  • Do medikits repair armor?
  • How does enemy progression work?
  • Is there a benefit to multiple interceptors on one satellite?
  • Can I abandon an escort mission after evacuating the vip somehow?
  • How can I reduce panic in a country?
  • Do alien squads alert each other?
  • Are there any benefits to capturing live zombies?

    On windows 7, they are in Documents\My Games\XCOM - Enemy Unknown\XComGame\SaveData

    Note that this applies to the steam install. According to helpful comments, it’s the location is the same for the retail version (and retail purchases apparently just provide steam keys).

    On MacOS, the Steam edition saves its games to ~/Library/Application Support/Feral Interactive/XCOM Enemy Unknown/SaveData/. I suspect the non-Steam version is the same (aka Elite Edition, Mac AppStore). Details from this blog post. The Steam edition also has Steam Cloud synchronization, but I have not verified that it’s working.

    XCOM Enemy Within saves its games in ~/Library/Application Support/Feral Interactive/XCOM Enemy Unknown/XEW/SaveData.

    As mentioned here: https://steamcommunity.com/app/200510/discussions/0/522730699423954666/

    Here is the location of the save game for Linux

    ~/.local/share/feral-interactive/XCOM/ for Enemy Unknown and

    ~/.local/share/feral-interactive/XCOM/XEW/ for Enemy Within

    Saves are in the savedata/ folder in XCOM/ or XCOM/XEW/.

    Hope this helps some future googlers!

    Steam Version on Windows 7:

    Users\[USERNAME]\Documents\My Games\XCOM - Enemy Unknown\XComGame\SaveData

    It’s the ‘users’ folder, even if you’ve moved your normal documents – it still goes to the Windows default folder…
