Controversial Shooter Six Days in Fallujah Gets Delayed

Just a day or two after Volition delayed Saints Row for a few months, we have another game affected. Saints Row like numerous titles has seen development schedules hitting issues thanks to the global pandemic. So now another delay to bring to your attention is the controversial Six Days in Fallujah, which is now coming next year.

Six Days in Fallujah was originally given a 2021 release date by Konami, who abandoned the project back in April 2009. However, it appears seemingly poised for a resurrection thanks to a reveal in February. Like 2009, the controversy returned and as reported by IGN, events are still too painful for many.

The reason behind the delay

The controversy behind a release will never help any development. But it seems to tell the story at the high standard they want is proving a challenge. And that is with an experienced team on board. For those unaware Six Days in Fallujah is now being developed by Highwire. Onboard are staff who have worked on Destiny and Halo. This is what the publisher said about the delay and posted on their website via their CEO Peter Tamte:

It became clear that recreating these true stories at a high quality was going to require more people, capital, and time than we had. Doubling our team is just one of many things we’re doing to make sure Six Days in Fallujah brings new kinds of tactical and emotional depth to military shooters.

Why Six Days in Fallujah is facing a delay

What the game is about

The website gives a good description of the history and what to expect. The premise for the game came from a Marine who was in Fallujah and wounded. So Highwire “with help from more than 100 Marines, Soldiers, and Iraqi civilians” are bringing the project Konami left behind back. It will mix “documentary with gameplay to recreate true stories from the 2004 Second Battle for Fallujah.”. But what do you think of this news? Would it be a game you’d play or one you would actively avoid? As it’s a game that comes out will certainly bring even more controversy.
