The release of ArmA 3 has been postponed, Bohemia Interactive has announced. The additional development time will “enable the project to reach its full potential,” and a release plan will be finalized next year.
Joris-Jan van ‘t Land, a 10-year veteran of Bohemia Interactive, took over the role of ArmA 3 project lead from Daniel Musil, who left the studio to pursue other opportunities.
“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”, said van ‘t Land, referring to the detainment of Bohemia Interactive developers Ivan Buchta and Martin Pezlar in Greece.
“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, and the firm is continuing work on the standalone release of DayZ.
