A leaked marketing guide seems to confirm that Arma 4 won’t be the next entry in Bohemia Interactive’s franchise, but will instead be a PC and console game called Arma Reforger.
As reported by PC Gamer, the marketing guide was published on Reddit’s Gaming Leaks and Rumors and appears to be credible, especially as Bohemia gears up for the reveal the “Future or Arma” on May 17, 2022.
The guide says that due to the “complexity of developing Arma 4,” Arma Reforger will be a “bridge” between Arma 3 and what will eventually be the official fourth game in the series. While it might not be the Arma 4 people were hoping for, it looks like it will use Bohemia’s new Enfusion engine.
Arma Reforger will reportedly be set on the fictional island of Everon in the Atlantic Ocean and set in an “alternate year 1989” during a conflict between the US and the Soviet Union. The game is billed as a “military simulation game (as opposed to a ‘simulator’)”, suggesting that it could be more accessible than the mainline games.
Bohemia hopes that this game, which will run on its new Enfusion engine, will introduce modders to the new tools in time for Arma 4 whenever it comes out. That way, Arma 4 should have a thriving modding community at launch.
The marketing guide also notes that Bohemia will continue to work with the International Committee of the Red Cross and the company will continue to work on features that have an “anti-war humanitarian focus” by continuing to “expose, disseminate and promote international humanitarian law.” . in the game.”
Arma 3 was released in 2013 and rigged footage of the game was recently used as fake news footage of fighting in Ukraine.
