Bohemia Interactive announced the company has purchased development firms Altar Games, Black Element Software, and Centauri Production.

All four original development studios will continue operating both individually and cooperatively on various projects, as parts of Bohemia Interactive.

“Game development stands and falls with the skills, vision and enthusiasm of its developers” said Marek Spanel, Bohemia’s CEO. “This acquisition strengthens our studio by adding extremely experienced and talented developers from three different teams at Altar, Black Element and Centauri.

“It is true milestone in our company’s history.”

Known for its military simulators such as Operation Flashpoint: Cold War Crisis and Arma 2, the Bohemia’s new development teams are known for creating a variety of genres:

  • Altar Games – strategy titles Original War and the UFO Trilogy
  • Black Element – action titles Shade: Wrath of Angels, Alpha Prime
  • Centauri Production – adventure title Memento Mori, as well as games for children and family

Nice to see the firm is successful, and recently released standalone expansion pack to Arma 2: Operation Arrowhead and DLC Arma 2: British Armed Forces will be followed by new titles in the near future, according to the press release.
