Based on the Second Battle of Fallujah’s real events, the tactical first-person shooter Six Days in Fallujah was originally announced by Atomic Games in 2009. However, the publisher Konami later decided to cancel the game due to criticism from the US military. The project is now back with new publisher Victura and developer Highwire Games.
This time, the team is working closely with the Marines and soldiers who fought in the Battle of Fallujah. The creators have spent over three years creating unique technologies and game mechanics that help convey modern combat tactics better than in other video games.
More than 100 marines, soldiers and Iraqi civilians present during the Second Battle of Fallujah shared their personal stories, photos and videos with the team. In-game, these stories are provided through gameplay and first-person events captured in the original documentary video interviews. The developers aim to make the most authentic military shooter to date and tell these military and civilian stories honestly and honestly.
Six Days in Fallujah will be released in 2021 on PC and unnamed consoles. In the coming weeks, they promise to reveal more details about the game.
