The Council on American Islamic Relations (CAIR) issued a statement calling on Microsoft, Sony, and Valve not to distribute the Six Days game in Fallujah.
In the text, the group describes the game as a “simulation of killing Arabs” and that the production glorifies the violence that has claimed the lives of more than 800 Iraqi civilians in what has become known as one of the bloodiest battles of the Iraq War.
The game depicts six days in the second battle of Fallujah. According to the producer, it blends excerpts of the gameplay with video clips of reports from American veterans and Iraqi civilians to bring different perspectives to the fight.
However, CAIR says it normalizes violence against Muslims in the United States and around the world only and asks distributors not to display the game on their platforms.
The game was originally announced in 2009 in a partnership between Konami and Atomic Games, however, with severe negative repercussions, The publisher abandoned the project.
Controversy returned to the media in February of this year when studio Highwire Games and publisher Victura announced they would resume production of the game.
Six days in Fallujah does not have an official release date yet, but it should arrive later this year.
