Konami departure "surprised" Fallujah dev

Would "love the opportunity" to finish game.

Six Days in Fallujah developer Atomic Games was "surprised" by the recent departure of publisher Konami because of too much negative press.

"We were informed on Thursday night that Konami had decided to pull out of Six Days in Fallujah," Atomic boss Peter Tamte told GameSpot. "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," he added.

Six Days in Fallujah recreates, with the help of US Marines and army intelligence, the intense Iraq War battle of Fallujah. Unsurprisingly, controversy has been rife, with numerous parties - including SAS hard-man Andy McNab - wading in.

The game - in development for PC, PS3 and Xbox 360 - is now left without a publisher.
