Atomic Games reponds to Fallujah canning

Yesterday brought news that Konami had decided not to publish the controversial shooter, Six Days in Fallujah. Despite only announcing the game a few of weeks ago, the Japanese company clearly didn’t have the stomach to weather the mini-storm whipped up by the game’s real-world, real-timeline Iraq War setting.

Today, Atomic Games, the developers of Six Days have spoken out, detailing their shock at Konami’s swift departure from the scene. “We were informed on Thursday night that Konami had decided to pull out of Six Days in Fallujah“, said an official press release. “This caught us by surprise. Development of the game had been progressing very well and on schedule. We would very much like the opportunity to complete the game.”

So, unsurprisingly, Atomic Games are on the look-out for new publishers. We wish them the best of luck, and will, of course, keep you up-to-date on any further announcements.
