Over a decade after it was announced, Six Days in Fallujah will arrive on PC and consoles later this year. Highwire Games whose developers who previously worked on the likes of Destiny and Halo is reviving the controversial Iraq War game as a tactical first-person shooter.

Looks too intense for me. I'd have to call my doctor for more BP meds.  :hide:

Wasn't Kuma\War out around the same time that this was announced? IIRC, it had a similar concept of creating scenarios based on real events.

Hopefully this will be publicity for the game and it will all just backfire.

Usually how this kind of thing works out.  Imagine if War in the East 2 was criticized for "normalizing" the mass murder of Soviets.  ::)
