Arma 3 Postponed; Release Plans Coming in New Year
Arma 3 has been postponed, an announcement that should hardly surprise anyone who has been following news of the two Bohemia Interactive employees who were incarcerated in Greece under suspicion of espionage. The studio expects to finalize its release plans in the new year.
Joris-Jan van ‘t Land recently took over the role of Arma 3 Project Lead from Daniel Musil, who left the studio to pursue other opportunities. Van ‘t Land explained how Bohemia is pressing on with development while trying to come to terms with what has happened to its two detained employees:
“We’ve been in the process of implementing changes that will help us innovate as a studio under unexpected circumstances – facing problems we simply couldn’t have imagined. We’re still trying to make sense of the situation and hope that our colleagues will be released soon. Although their plight has certainly affected us on a personal level, we continue working on the tasks identified as key to the release of Arma 3.”
The new release window of Arma 3 has been set for 2013. Joris-Jan van ‘t Land said:
“I hope this update provides some answers regarding the status of the project. We’re currently sorting the specifics so we can deliver a more complete announcement at the beginning of next year.”
