Remember Six Days in Fallujah? It was a tactical shooter in development for the PS3 and Xbox 360 back in 2009 that was based on real-world events, which was cancelled due to the controversy surrounding it. Well, it seems the game is back on track and what’s more, is out for release later this year!

In a press release, a new announcement trailer has been shown off along with the first few details regarding the game! It’s now being developed by Highwire Games which is comprised of devs that helped make the original Halo and Destiny games (Bungie staff).
Watch the trailer that instead of focuses on full-on action, instead tries to share the tension of assaulting structures and the fear that opening a door might be your last one.
According to the press release, the devs are working in partnership with frontline Marines and soliders who fought in the Battle for Fallujah. Publisher Victura and Highwire has spent more than three years building unique tech and game mechanics that “bring players closer to the uncertainty and tactics of modern combat than other video games have explored.”
The devs are aiming for Six Days in Fallujah to be the “most authentic military shooter to date and to tell these military and civilian stories with the integrity they deserve.’
Six Days in Fallujah will be released this 2021 on PC and consoles, though it wasn’t specified which consoles, and whether it will still incorporate multiplayer as was the original goal. Given the devs behind it, I gather, multiplayer is all but a certainty.
We’ll have more on the game as more info surfaces.
