'Six Days In Fallujah' Delayed Until Late 2022

Six Days In Fallujah is a first-person tactical military shooter based on true stories from the Second Battle for Fallujah in 2004.

The Second Battle for Fallujah began in 2004 after Al Qaeda seized control of one of Iraq’s major cities. The battle proved to be the toughest military conflict for Western forces since 1968. 

Lead a fireteam through accurately recreated encounters from the real battle. Each mission is played through the eyes of a real person who narrates what really happened.

Over 100 Marines, Soldiers, and Iraqi civilians who were present during the Second Battle for Fallujah have shared their personal stories, photographs, and video recordings with the development team. The game gives these stories voice through gameplay and first-person accounts captured in original documentary interview footage. Six Days in Fallujah aims to be the most authentic military shooter to date and to tell these military and civilian stories with the integrity they deserve.

Working in partnership with frontline Marines and Soldiers who fought in the Battle for Fallujah, Victura and Highwire have spent more than three years building unique technologies and game mechanics that bring players closer to the uncertainty and tactics of modern combat than other video games have explored. 

Atomic Games announced Six Days in Fallujah in 2009, but saw the title abandoned by its original publisher following controversy about the ability of video games to cover challenging real-world events.

Victura and Highwire Games announced plans to nearly double the size of the team developing Six Days in Fallujah and delay release of the game until Q4-2022.

“It became clear that recreating these true stories at a high quality was going to require more people, capital, and time than we had,” according to Victura CEO Peter Tamte. “Doubling our team is just one of many things we’re doing to make sure Six Days in Fallujah brings new kinds of tactical and emotional depth to military shooters.”

More details about Six Days in Fallujah will be revealed in the coming weeks, including new technologies that make videogame combat more like the way it was described by those who were there.

Six Days in Fallujah is coming to PC and consoles in Q4 2022..
