Konami Axes “Six Days”

I’m honestly not surprised this happened, and I’m sure this was a possibility that ran through the brains of many Konami execs. The question now is, will a new publisher be sought out?

Mere weeks after its unveiling, contentious war game “Six Days in Fallujah” has reportedly been abandoned by game publisher, Konami.
“After seeing the reaction to the videogame in the United States and hearing opinions sent through phone calls and e-mail, we decided several days ago not to sell it,” a Konami PR rep told
Asahi.com
. “We had intended to convey the reality of the battles to players so that they could feel what it was like to be there.”
Revealed to the press earlier this month, “Six Days in Fallujah” focuses on the Second Battle of Fallujah, a grim 2004 conflict that claimed the lives of over 2,000 civilians, soldiers, and insurgents.
Despite (or perhaps due to) the game’s authentic bend, military veterans, peace groups and bereaved families immediately condemned the title for its touchy subject matter, claiming it was both insensitive and tasteless.
“Six Days” developer, Atomic Games, has yet to announce if it will continue to pursue the game’s release.
