SIX DAYS IN FALLUJAH Is Back After Being Delayed For 10 Years
Six Days in Fallujah was revealed back in 2009. The game is based not on the Second Battle for Fallujah which began in 2004 following Al Qaeda’s seizing control of one of Iraq’s main cities. Developed by Atomic Games, the game had shut down due to controversy. The controversy in question was because of the game’s sensitive subject matter because of it being surrounded by real-world events. It was set to be a realistic military shooter, unlike anything, you have played before.
Enter Victura, the new publisher for the game is finally giving Six Days its release! Victura is a publishing and production company founded in 2016 by former Atomic Games CEO Peter Tamte. His mission in starting the company was the chance to bring Six Days to players along with other games that are based on true stories.
The publisher along with developer Highwire Games, frontline Marines, and Soldiers who’ve fought in the Battle for Fallujah, are able to build new technology and game mechanics that give players real-life tactics used in modern combat. This is something we really haven’t seen in video games. Now that there are a new publisher and new developer, the game is back with help from many of the leadership team behind Halo and Destiny to bring this game to fruition.
Six Days in Fallujah will be releasing on consoles and PC in 2021. Victura will reveal more details about the game in the upcoming weeks.
