Release

Operation Fortune: Ruse de Guerre was scheduled to be released by STX Entertainment.[12][13] It was originally scheduled for release on January 21, 2022, and March 18, 2022.[2][14] On February 18, 2022, the film was pulled from the release schedule without comment by the studio.[15] Reports indicate the film was pulled from release, not due to the COVID-19 pandemic as before, but because it featured gangsters of Ukrainian nationality as the main antagonist Greg Simmonds' henchmen. The film's producers thought it would be of bad taste, in light of the ongoing Russo-Ukrainian War sparking global outrage, for the movie to present "Ukrainian baddies".[16] In November 2022, amid STX's restructuring, it was reported that the film would likely be released domestically through a streaming service, while its international distributors will start launching the film theatrically in January 2023.[17]
