Now this is a really weird story. Earlier yesterday, two Czech men were arrested at Limnos island by the Greek police. According to the police reports, it seems that these Czech guys were taking photographs of Limnos’ military bases, something that is prohibited in Greek islands. However, these Czech guys claimed to be members of Bohemia Interactive and stated that they were taking photos for their upcoming military FPS title, ArmA III.
As you may already know, ArmA III will be one of the best tactical military FPS titles of 2013. The game takes place in Limnos and Bohemia has already photographed various military bases in order to make it as authentic as possible. Question is though – how was the company able to take photos of Limnos’ bases without raising any problems in the past? In other words, are these two Czech men working at Bohemia, or are they – as the police called them – spies?
We’ve already contacted Bohemia for a comment on this matter, and we’ll be sure to keep you posted.
ArmA III is currently planned for a 2013 release,exclusively on the PC!

Bohemia’s Korneel told us that Bohemia ‘don’t have enough details right now.’ However, Bohemia’s CEO, Marek Spanel, confirmed at the official forum that the story is real.
As Marek Spanel said:
