Victura and Highwire Games have announced that the first-person tactical shooter, Six Days in Fallujah, is back in development and set to release in late 2021.
Six Days in Fallujah was originally announced in 2009 by Atomic Games and Konami, and was set to release in 2010. However, the game was cancelled by Konami shortly after its announcement due to backlash over its subject matter.
This new incarnation of Six Days in Fallujah will be similar to its original vision, and follows a fireteam during the Second Battle of Fallujah in 2004. The development team for this new version of the game includes key members of the original Halo and Destiny development teams.
Much like the original 2009 version, Six Days in Fallujah was created in collaboration with over 100 Marines, Soldiers, and Iraqi civilians who contributed their stories and eyewitness accounts from the battle.
The game seeks to be a documentary as much as a video game, and promises to provide gamers with a realistic and authentic portrayal of the events of the Second Battle of Fallujah from people who experienced it firsthand.
