The potential? Yes. Nothing I've seen said about the game by those working on it has inspired confidence and plenty I've seen said has inspired doubt.

Nobody seems to be challenging or exploring Tamte's assertion that games are empathy machines. They aren't. Games don't have a special ability to impart empathy over say, a movie. They certainly can, but they don't have some sort of special quality that makes this easier or better. In many cases, it has less depending on your choices.

I want to see how they try to accomplish this goal, and whether they do. The fact that you have filmed interviews of the soldiers themselves is telling.
