After months of sitting in a jail cell in Greece, the two ArmA 3 developers, Ivan Buchta and Martin Pezlar, have been released on bail.
Both of the developers were arrested quite some time ago for apparently spying on a Greek military installation in Lemnos. They were denied bail shortly after as they still maintained they were on vacation to visit the island that inspired the game’s landscape design. The Czech Republic president even stepped in to try and help out the two developers, but to no avail.
Kotaku is reporting that even though both of the developers have been released, they are still not out of the woods yet.
Ota Vrťátko, a Bohemia Interactive rep told Kotaku that the trial is still coming and they will be fighting against these charges regardless of them leaving Greece.
"It is obviously wonderful news and we're very happy that Ivan and Martin may finally return home after four months of detainment in Greece. We're prepared to further help them and their families in any way necessary and we are looking forward to meeting our friends and colleagues Ivan and Martin again soon,” Vrťátko says.
The good news for gamers is that with the release of these two developers, we could be seeing things finally getting back to normal at Bohemia Interactive with some scheduled release dates for ArmA 3 and of course, the DayZ standalone.
