It is the FPS based on the Iraq war; its authors initially said that it was not a political game.
Last February, and to everyone’s surprise, Six Days in Fallujah reappeared, a game we hadn’t known about for 11 years and which he canceled Konami, but now he’s risen by victura, a new developer studio made up of former Bungie veterans. Considering that the game is based on one of the conflicts of the Iraq war, its creatives said that they did not stand out from possible political readings about the fray, at the same time that they indicate that their intention is not to make a Call of Duty of said battle.
Some statements that did not go unnoticed, since such a proposal, based on a conflict like the one it deals with, is inherently political. “I don’t think players are going to be confused about the cost of the war,” said Peter Tamte, the game’s executive director. Now, just two weeks after those statements, the study has issued an official statement backing down on the matter, and confirming that the events that the game recreates are “inseparably political”.
They have interviewed both parties to the conflict to bring their testimonies to the game“We understand that the events recreated in Six Days in Fallujah are inseparable from politics. This is how the game gives voice to a variety of perspectives on the conflict ”, they indicate from Victura in the statement, where they also affirm that for the game they have based on testimonies of war veterans and civilians to face the work” from the diversity of experiences and opinions about the Iraq war.
At this point, and to clarify that it will not be a vision of the war from only one side, the letter also indicates that “26 Iraqi civilians and dozens of soldiers have contributed by sharing their most difficult moments”. Thus, they have the idea that the players can listen, through this shooter, “the experiences of those who participated in their own words.
After acknowledging this, which honors the studio, Six Days in Fallujah is scheduled to launch later this year. on PC as well as PlayStation and Xbox consoles of the current and the new generation throughout 2021, on a date yet to be confirmed. They also promise that it is not a game that seeks to recruit new soldiers for the US military.
