In 2009, 6 Days in Fallujah, the first major studio release of a game about a real ongoing war was “cancelled” 3 weeks before its release date. Now, in 2021, there’s a new 6 Days in Fallujah game and the trailer is out. Is this a more responsible version of the game’s concept? We think it’s a brave and imperfect step in the right direction along a difficult path the gaming industry has to take in order to be able to tackle serious subjects.
