Six Days in Fallujah hangs on for dear life; Atomic seeks new publisher

six days in fallujah screen Six Days in Fallujah hangs on for dear life; Atomic seeks new publisherIt’s caused a schism here among us writers for being too soon, too disrespectful, too … Iraqi – but, no matter how you look at it, Konami’s decision to pull out of publishing Atomic Games’ Six Days of Fallujah like it was Saigon circa 1975 has lead to one stark and obvious fact – Atomic need a new publisher.

Speaking to Edge Magazine, Peter Tamte, independent developer Atomic Games’ president, said: “We were informed on Thursday night that Konami had decided to pull out of Six Days in Fallujah.” Tamte goes on to say that the decision was something of a shock, especially as the game was on schedule to hit its 2010 release window.

Tamte also states that he very much wishes to see the game through to its conclusion; inferring the game could be touted to potential new publishing suiters in order to see a release.

We hope his passport is up to date.

It wouldn’t be the first time a controversial game was unceremoniously dropped by one publisher only for it to be picked up and turned into a success by another. What publisher out there has the mettle to take this media-storm on? We’ll get back to you with more details as soon as we hear anything back from Rockstar.
