A leaked marketing guide appears to confirm that Arma 4 won’t be Bohemia Interactive’s next entry in the franchise, but instead will be a PC and console game called Arma Reforger.
As reported by PC Gamer, the marketing guide has been posted on Reddit’s Gaming Leaks and Rumors and appears to be believable, especially as Bohemia prepares to reveal. the “Future or Arma” on May 17, 2022.
The guide states that due to the “complexity of Arma 4 development”, Arma Reforger will be a “bridge” between Arma 3 and what will ultimately be the fourth official game in the series. While it might not be the Arma 4 people were hoping for, it does appear to use Bohemia’s new Enfusion Engine.
Arma Reforger is said to be set on the fictional island of Everon in the Atlantic Ocean and set in “an alternate year 1989” during a conflict between the United States and the Soviet Union. The game is billed as a “military simulation game (as opposed to a ‘simulator’)”, hinting that it might be more accessible than the main games.
Bohemia hopes this game, which will be on its new Enfusion engine, will get modders comfortable with the new tools in time for Arma 4, whenever it arrives. By doing so, 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 that the company will continue to work on features that have an “anti-war humanitarian focus” by continuing to “expose, disseminate and promote the IHL”. Stake.”
Arma 3 was released in 2013 and doctored footage from the game has recently been used as hoax news footage about the fighting in Ukraine.
