Korean site Asahi is reporting that Konami has canceled development of docu-game Six Days In Fallujah.
"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 public relations official of Konami reportedly told Asahi. "We had intended to convey the reality of the battles to players so that they could feel what it was like to be there."
The game, which aims to offer a you-are-there perspective on the Gulf War II's bloody Battle of Fallujah, garnered controversy and condemnation from some peace activists and veteran's groups upon its announcement earlier this month. Although the Iraq War veterans we spoke with seemed okay with the title coming out. Check out our early look at the game here.
I've contacted Konami, and hopefully I'll be hearing back one way or the other whether the game has been canceled or not.
