Arma 3 release postponed

Arma 3 didn't have much time left to hit 2012, and developer Bohemia Interactive has elected to move back its release window. The military simulation game, which is sharing development with the standalone version of zombie survival mod DayZ, will release sometime in 2013.

"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 the game's new project lead Joris-Jan van ‘t Land. We can't blame Bohemia Interactive for failing to predict that two key members of its production staff would be arrested and held for months without trial in Greece.

"We're still trying to make sense of the situation and hope that our colleagues will be released soon," van ‘t Land said. "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 studio expects to produce firmer release plans after the new year arrives.

    I understand the 2 devs being arrested - the law is the law But MONTHS without a trial? That's just ridiculous.

    It's a scary thing when your legal system, the frame of your society, is on strike. I don't envy Greek citizens right now.
