The lights are on
The new release window for Arma 3 has been pushed to an unspecified time in 2013. Bohemia Interactive expects the release plans to be finalized next year, and is confident that the additional development time will allow the game’s full potential to be realized.
Project lead, Joris-Jan van‘t Land, referred to the imprisonment of two Bohemia Interactive employees in Greece as a problem they couldn’t have imagined.
The two employees were arrested earlier this year on suspicion of espionage, while visiting the island of Lemnos, which inspired the environment in Arma 3. The two employees are still in jail and awaiting legal proceedings. While Land acknowledges the arrest affected the studio on a personal level, he also states that the team is continuing to work on tasks which are integral to the release of Arma 3.
