After what they have described as “an eventful year”, Bohemia Interactive has announced that the release of Arma 3 is to be postponed to an unknown date in 2013.
The game, which was set to come out later this month met with an extreme setback when two of it’s development team Ivan Buchta and Martin Pezlar were arrested and detained on charges of espionage in Greece.
The game currently has a new project lead, Joris-Jan van’t Land who recently told press that they’d “been in the process of implementing changes that will help us innovate as a studio under unexpected circumstances.”
The project lead goes on to say that they have been facing problems they couldn’t have imagined.
“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 lawyer for the duo — who have reached their 95th day as prisoners — has recently filed their second appeal which is set to be processed some time after the new year.
For those who might still be confused about the circumstances surrounding the two developers’ detainment, a supporter has put together an Arma machinima that explains the events as relayed by the duo.
