Staff arrests force Bohemia Interactive to delay ARMA III
Bohemia Interactive has been forced to announce that they will be delaying the launch of ARMA III until 2013.
The delay has been caused by the unfortunate arrests of two of their staff members under suspicion of espionage while on holiday on the Greek island of Lemnos. Both remain in custody in Greece while they await legal proceedings
ARMA III project lead, Joris-Jan van't Land explained, "Weve 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"
He added on the plight of the two staffers, "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."
"I hope this update provides some answers regarding the status of the project," van't Land continued. "We're currently sorting the specifics so we can deliver a more complete announcement at the beginning of next year."
