"Six Days in Fallujah" was a third-person shooter game that was canceled long ago for its controversial story and depictions of real incidents is finally back into the works now. An announcement trailer is released already.
The game's story is set in the Iraq war period. The game will show the "Second Battle of Fallujah" through its storyline. The original studio named "Atomic Games" which is not in business anymore was working with real US soldiers for a more realistic depiction of the incidents and the war. The game originally was announced in 2009 for PC, PS3, and Xbox 360 but was later canceled due to growing controversies and negative feedbacks for almost 10 years.
"Konami" which was supposed to publish the game at the time eventually dropped the project due to the immense amount of criticizing at the time eventually making a work stoppage in the middle.
This time a new studio named "Highwire Games" consisting "Jaime Griesemer" and "Marty O’Donnell" who have previously worked as game designers in studios like "Bungie and Sucker Punch Productions" for famous games like Halo, Destiny, and Infamous is working on the project again.
According to the founders of the studio, this will be the "most authentic military shooter to date". To make it happen the development team has spoken to “over 100 Marines, Soldiers, and Iraqi civilians who were present during the Second Battle for Fallujah” and has also collected personal stories, photographs, and recordings for the project.
The new publisher "Victura" is founded by Pete Tamte who was the CEO of "Atomic Games" before was also involved with the original team of "Six Days in Fallujah" a decade ago. The game is set to release in 2021 for PCs but the consoles are yet to be announced.
