When the resurrection of Six Days in Fallujah was first announced, publisher Victura told Polygon that they weren't "trying to make a political commentary." Er, that's a really bold and stupid statement to make given how your game focuses on some of the most fucked up events of the Iraq War. Even ignoring the broader context, the game literally focuses on war. War is, by its very nature, political. There's no way around it.

Cut to today when the publisher made a quick 180 on their stupid stance. They now say that "the events recreated in Six Days in Fallujah are inseparable from politics."

The tactical shooter has been generating a ton of controversy even before this rebirth of the game. It was 11 years ago that Konami canned the game's original release due to its depictions of the very bloody and horrific Second Battle of Falluja.

The tweet specifies that the game will blend together a mix of gameplay and documentary footage. It says that the footage will feature "service members and civilians with diverse experiences and opinions about the Iraq War." Victura also goes on to say that they will not feature any gameplay segments where the player will use white phosphorus as a weapon. The use of white phosphorus during this battle will only be described during the documentary portions.

Six Days in Fallujah is still in development from Highware Games. It is looking to be released later in 2021.
