More than a decade ago in 2009, it was games like Battlefield, Call of Duty, and Halo that continued to dominate the first-person shooter genre. But in that same year, another military first-person experience was originally set to hit development. However, publisher Konami eventually pulled the plug on the project and effectively put the game to rest with no further hope for a comeback. But in a new press release from Victura, Six Days in Fallujah is returning.

Originally developed by Atomic Games (Close Combat), Six Days in Fallujah is now shared to being an inherited project for Highwire Games. The Seattle game studio is comprised of seasoned developers initially working at Bungie on titles like Halo and later Destiny. The game is said to ship for PC and consoles, however, no specific platforms were mentioned.

You can watch the announcement trailer for Six Days in Fallujah in the video below:

“It’s hard to understand what combat is actually like through fake people doing fake things in fake places,” Peter Tamte, Highwire Games CEO tells. “This generation showed sacrifice and courage in Iraq as remarkable as any in history. And now they’re offering the rest of us a new way to understand one of the most important events of our century. It’s time to challenge outdated stereotypes about what video games can be.”

As you might expect from the titling of the project, the returning experience is said to be an interpretation of the Battle in Fallujah which took place in the Iraq providence back in 2004. The impact of the skirmish left one combatant, former Marine Sergeant Eddie Garcia, to pitch the game back in 2005. “Sometimes the only way to understand what’s true is to experience reality for yourself.

“War is filled with uncertainty and tough choices that can’t be understood by watching someone on a TV or movie screen make these choices for you. Video games can help all of us understand real-world events in ways other media can’t.” Are you interested in picking up Six Days in Fallujah when it arrives?

Six Days in Fallujah is scheduled to release sometime in 2021.
