Six Days in Fallujah has been pushed into next year, publisher Victura and developer Highwire Games have announced. Originally due to release by the end of this year, having been canned by Konami 12 years ago, the game will now release in late 2022, as the team looks to deliver a greater level of “tactical and emotional depth”.
“It became clear that recreating these true stories at a high quality was going to require more people, capital, and time than we had," said Victura CEO Peter Tamte in a statement. ”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."
Apparently, Six Days in Fallujah is being developed with help from more than 100 Marines, Soldiers, and Iraqi civilians, and was conceived by a US Marine who was badly wounded during the Second Battle of Fallujah in 2004. The game aims to recount true stories based on their accounts, which has drawn its fair share of criticism.
Initially, Victura and Highwire noted that the game wasn't a “political commentary” on the Iraq War, before backtracking on that statement, assuring that given its real-life accounts and subject matter, Six Days in Fallujah is “inseparable from politics”.
Six Days in Fallujah will now release in Q4 2022 for Xbox, PlayStation, and PC, an entire year on from its originally intended launch window.
