Controversial since its revelation more than 10 years ago, Six Days in Fallujah has once again been in the crosshairs of critics of its theme and now that the project has been resumed, is again in development and with plans to debut soon on consoles and PC, an organization has expressed its disagreement with the game and its launch.
Six Days in Fallujah it generates controversy again
According to a report by Polygon, the Muslim organization in the United States, Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR), expressed its disagreement against the launch of Six Days in Fallujah and made a request to Sony, Microsoft and Valve not to allow the game to be published and sold on their platforms, that is, PlayStation, Xbox and Steam. The reason, according to the CAIR, is that they consider Six Days in Fallujah as an “Arab assassination simulator” and its theme “glorifies a violent offensive that claimed the lives of more than 800 people.”
Six Days in Fallujah is a strategic shooter that addresses the events of the Second Battle of Fallujah in 2004 from the perspective of the US Marines. In fact, the game is considered as a vindication of said military body and those who participated in the Iraq War, since one of its objectives is to show how crude and horrible the war is in the combat zone, a position that ultimately divides opinions .
The CAIR also pointed out that it is time for video gamers to stop “dehumanizing” Muslims; this as a result of the titles that present fictitious conflicts where some of the “enemies” are members of that religion and culture.
Until now, Six Days in Fallujah It does not have a launch window, but its development continues and it was recently revealed that it will work with a procedural architecture generation system that will make each combat different, adding a strategic element in real time.
