Military shooter ArmA III has been delayed into 2013, skipping out on its expected 2012 release. In an official statement, developer Bohemia Interactive expressed regret over the delay, but mostly concern for the two ArmA devs, Ivan Buchta and Martin Pezlar, still being held by Greek authorities on suspicions of espionage.
Although Bohemia has already insisted that the two devs Ivan Buchta and Martin Pezlar weren't acting as spies -- just tourists -- when they visited Greece to see Lemmos Island, both men are still stuck in prison. In addition to this, project lead Daniel Musil had left Bohemia during development.
New project lead Joris-Jan van't Land remarked that the entire team is still trying to overcome "problems we couldn't have imagined," referring to the detainment of Buchta and Pezlar. He says:
"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."
Bohemia is also currently working on a standalone version of DayZ, currently in development under Dean Hall's supervision.
