Last week, Arma fans got excited as a Slovakian journalist tweeted that Arma 4 was in development. However, it appears that’s not the case as Bohemia Interactive put those rumours to rest, stating that it is not currently working on Arma 4. Bohemia’s Korneel van ‘t Land claimed that the team does not plan to announce a potential new Arma title in the next years as its Enfusion Engine is still in development.
As Korneel van ‘t Land told PCGamer:
“It’s too early even for us to tell when and in what form the Arma series would continue into the longer-term future. We can already say that we’re not expecting to announce a potential new Arma title in the next years. This timeline is also related to our goal of having all future Bohemia games run on the new Enfusion engine, which is still in development, and will take time to exceed the standards set by Arma 3 and meet future requirements. Right now we do have concrete plans for a significant amount of support for Arma 3 through a combination of official new content and hopefully third-party DLC content in at least the coming year, and most probably even years.”
So yeah, don’t expect Arma 4 anytime soon. Although Bohemia does indent to have all of its future games in its new Enfusion Engine, that engine is still in development so it will take a lot of time until we see a game that will be powered by it.
Perhaps when next-gen consoles hit the streets we may hear more about the Enfusion Engine and Arma 4? Only Bohemia knows the answer to that question!
