Six Days in Fallujah will be released in 2021 for PS4, Xbox One and PC, but it is not without controversy and is that the representation of one of the most notorious and bloody conflicts of the Iraq War has brought a tail for years.
Controversy and political overtones seem to go hand in hand with Six Days in Fallujah, the fps now developed by Highwire Games and Victura, after the project was abandoned long ago. The Muslim community has spoken out against the launch of the game.
The Council on American-Islamic Relations, a group that acts in defense of the civil rights of Muslims based in the United States, has requested Sony, Microsoft and Valve not to release the game on their platforms.
We call on Microsoft, Sony and Valve to ban their platforms from hosting Six Days in Fallujah, an Arab murder simulator that will only normalize violence against Muslims in America and around the world, said CAIR’s research and advocacy coordinator, Huzaifa Shahbaz, in a release.
The video game industry must stop dehumanizing Muslims. Video games like Six Days in Fallujah only serve to glorify the violence that took the lives of hundreds of Iraqi civilians, justify the Iraq war and reinforce anti-Muslim sentiment at a time when anti-Muslim fanaticism continues to threaten human life.
The truth is that the game has always been surrounded by controversy. After its cancellation and now resurgence, the creators of Six Days in Fallujah stressed that it is impossible to separate the game from politics. However, the emphasis has been re-emphasized that the game will not be a recruiting tool.
