Muslim Civil Rights Group Ask Valve to Drop Six Days in Fallujah From Steam

The game is glorifying violence according to the CAIR

Six Days in Fallujah is an up-and-coming first-person shooter developed by Highwire Games. It falls in the tactical shooter category and is known to center itself on the second battle of Fallujah, which goes down in history as one of the most vicious and traumatizing battles of the Iraqi War.

The gameplay reveal trailer for the game dropped a little over two weeks ago on Youtube, but it’s come to notice that something else has also dropped for the game as of late. The Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) is a US-based Muslim civil rights group and advocacy organization that has labeled the game as an “Arab murder simulator.” It has presently called on the big guns of video gaming to prohibit Six Days of Fallujah from distribution. They’ve taken to social media with the hashtag “DeplatformSixDays.”

Microsoft, Sony, and Valve have all been addressed since Six Days of Fallujah is targeted to release on multiple platforms. In addition, CAIR writes, “The Second Battle of Fallujah was a violent and bloody battle during the Iraq War that left more than 800 civilians dead. The tragic episode was heavily criticized for the U.S. military’s tactics, including the use of white phosphorous. In the years since the battle, numerous Iraqi babies have been born in Fallujah with birth defects.”

It seems that the matter has been subjectively taken to heart and is measuring up to something serious. The Research and Advocacy Coordinator of CAIR Huzaifa Shahbaz has spoken out in a statement, “We call on Microsoft, Sony and Valve to ban their platforms from hosting ‘Six Days in Fallujah,’ an Arab murder simulator that will only normalize violence against Muslims in America and around the world.

It seems that the upcoming shooter has somewhat of a harsh history as well. Six Days in Fallujah was first announced by Atomic Games in 2009 but the project was soon dismissed due to the courtesy of heavy scrutinization from the general public, political personalities, and even military representatives. However, the CEO of Atomic Games formed Vinctura and joined hands with Highwire Games to revive the game back to a state of publishment.

Alas, attempts to derail this IP yet again have begun, and it’s only a matter of time before we get to see what the responses are. Six Days in Fallujah has measured up to become a trouble-monger bar none.
