Fallujah 6thAccording to the publisher, the game based on real events was played in the second battle in Fallujah in 2004, and the game “didn’t attempt to make political comments.”
After being cancelled by the original publisher in 2009, the tactical military shooter game “Six-Day Tour” resumed development in Falluja, thanks to Highwire Games, a studio composed of former Halo and Destiny developers.
You might think that the game about the real war zone is inherently political, but obviously, the development studios and publishers behind the project are trying to treat it from a non-political perspective.
In an interview with Polygon, the owner of the publisher Victura, Peter Tamte, he explained that the purpose of the six-day trip to Fallujah from the obscure and memorable is to highlight the “complexity of urban battles by letting us see the world from the perspective of wearing boots.” “Ground soldiers.
“For our team, this is actually helping players understand the complexity of urban battles,” Tamt said in an interview.
“This is the experience of that person due to political decisions. We do want to show how the choices made by the decision makers affect those [a Marine] Need to be made on the battlefield.that’s it [Marine] We cannot make a second guess about the choice of policymakers. We are not going to make political comments on whether the war itself is good or bad. “
The strange thing is that the game is set in a real-world war, trying not to hold any opinion about the war itself. Someone might argue that your first choice to make this game is a political comment in itself. In the past, developers had a similar decline, especially when Ubisoft stated that in the “The Division 2” marketing activities, the political behavior of publicly participating in the game was “bad for the company”.
“Everyone who lost their loved ones in the battle heard this message: they don’t want to forget the sacrifice of their children or friends,” Tamte explained. “Even those who are very opposed [to the war in Iraq].I talked to many of them and other members of our team, especially the former military in our team [that] In 2009, we had a conversation with many of these families-we heard each other, “We don’t want you to play games for this, but we don’t want to forget our son’s sacrifice.” Mixed.
“The reality is that most people don’t understand Fallujah’s battle.”
Naughty dog Neil Druckman Regarding things, of course there is something to be said (below).
If your game involves serious topics, then it is political in nature. If this is a problem, please make another game… Otherwise, you should attribute the game to it and do your best to treat you as honestly and completely as possible. Warts and all.

The publisher is eager to outline the fact that the development team has not yet started making a game similar to Call of Duty. “[…] For most [relatives of war veterans] Their only video game idea is to watch others play Call of Duty. “Call of Duty” is a sport. If someone does a sport because of killing my son, I will be very upset. Our job now is to show people that we are not implementing Call of Duty. “
The game was originally announced and developed by Atomic Games in 2009. It was originally supposed to be released by Konami, but due to a controversial subject, the game was cancelled and it was forgotten until recently.
