A few days ago, Arma developer Bohemia Interactive published a tweet that May 17 should be noted in the calendar. So fans started speculating on an Arma 4 announcement. Now a leak has appeared that promises a multi-platform title called Arma Reforger.
The Arma series is considered a tactical military shooter with extremely realistic gameplay, where Arma 3 was the last main game of the series. A few days ago, a save-the-date tweet even sparked speculation that Arma developer Bohemia Interactive could announce Arma 4 on May 17th.
However, an alleged marketing and branding guide leaked online yesterday, revealing that a new installment of the series called Arma Reforger is set to be released. This offshoot would appear for the PC and the current generation of consoles – so a release for Xbox Series X|S and Playstation 5 would be within reach.
The leak also seems to confirm that Bohemia Interactive will announce Arma 4 alongside Arma Reforger. This title is “more focused” and aims to “introduce Arma to a new, console-centric audience” with a “very strong multiplayer focus” that will “test new technologies and design decisions that form the basis of Arma 4.” The title is said to be a “premium product with a stable and reasonable pricing” – so not a free-to-play game. However, the supposed marketing document states that “there should be basic in-game monetization” – although there is no mention of DLC or microtransactions.
Arma Reforger is set to be set in the 1980s Cold War and will be a military simulation game “as opposed to a simulator,” according to the document. And on Arma 4 it reads: “The Arma community is eagerly awaiting the announcement of Arma 4 and is aware that it will be developed with Bohemia’s new Enfusion engine. This will be the first time that an Arma game will be completely based on based on a new technology”. The leaked document presents the fact that the switch to the new enfusion engine means new challenges – so that Bohemia Interactive is not able to deliver the full scope of Arma 4 with all assets and features immediately at release.
