The controversial shooter Six Days in Fallujah will not be released until the last quarter of next year. So far, the publisher – Victura – is planned to debut in 2021.
The project is said to take advantage of the extra time spent on work as it plans to double the number of developers to fulfill its extended ambitions.
“It became clear that the restoration of real events in high quality requires more people, resources and time” – is written in the message. “Team doubling is just one of the things we’re doing to bring new tactical and emotional depth to military shooters.”
The title of the Highwire Games studio has recently come back to players’ minds after years of silence. This is the second attempt to create the game – the first was made in 2009, but the project was canceled a few months after the announcement – the title was criticized by war veterans and the families of fallen soldiers.
Now the controversy is similar. The Second Battle of Fallujah took place in 2004. American forces and Al-Qa’ida faced the clash, and many civilians were killed due to the actions taken. American troops are accused, for example, of using white phosphorus in the fight.
Coming back to Six Days in Fallujah, the game is a tactical shooter recreating these events. The plans include a system for issuing orders to subordinates, as well as network competition. All of this is from a first-person perspective.
