ArmA 3 Pushed Back to Q4 2012, Could Be Later If Further Dev Time Needed
Bohemia Interactive is prepared to take its time putting together PC-exclusive ArmA 3 if it needs to, and is already aiming for a fourth-quarter release this year, a quarter later than it had originally announced.
There’s not a firm release date for the game, although Bohemia told Eurogamer that for a while now it has been aiming for Q4 2012.
“We did not reveal exact release date so far but our target was for some time and still is Q4 2012 (instead of early plans of late summer that was announced initially),” a spokesperson told Eurogamer. “However, we are prepared to give development additional time if it will need it to ensure as good experience as possible. As soon as we have more specific release dates and plans we are going to communicate it clearly.
“Right now we are also finalizing release plans for Carrier Command: Gaea Mission which we definitely want to release prior Arma 3.”
So there you go. Arma III’s official website says Q4 2012 for the moment, but given that the game is PC exclusive, I’d bet players are willing to wait for a quality title than complain too loudly about a delay.
