Six Days in Fallujah, a tactical shooter that was supposed to release a long time ago is now finally coming to PC and consoles in 2021. The game will be based on true stories from the Second Battle for Fallujah in 2004.

Today, Victura and Highwire Games announced Six Days in Fallujah, a first-person tactical military shooter based on true stories from the Second Battle for Fallujah in 2004. After being cancelled way back in 2009, the game is now coming to PC and consoles in 2021. 

Six Days in Fallujah was originally announced by Atomic Games in 2009, but now returns with a new publisher, new developer and an all-new game from many of the core leadership team who created the original Halo and Destiny games.

"Sometimes the only way to understand what’s true is to experience a reality for yourself,” says former Marine Sergeant Eddie Garcia, who was wounded during the Battle for Fallujah and proposed the original idea for Six Days in Fallujah in 2005.

"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."

Victura is a publishing and production company founded in 2016 by former Atomic Games CEO Peter Tamte with the goal of bringing a new Six Days in Fallujah to players, along with other games based on true stories.

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.

More details about the game will be announced in the coming weeks according to the press release.
