Bohemia Interactive CEO Speaks Out
Ivan Buchta and Martin Pezlar were arrested earlier this month for reportedly taking pictures of Greek military bases on the island of Lemnos. Bohemia Interactive have consistently denied these allegations.
Today Marek Španěl, the CEO of Bohemia Interactive, spoke out saying their holiday was:
“organized via travel agent, with the single goal of experiencing the place that had inspired the virtual environments of Arma 3, a computer game that they’ve been working on over the past two years.”
Španěl goes on to say:
“According to media sources, the Greek ministry of National Defence actually examined our game, after local authorities raised this topic. They assured that the game is fine. Originally planned for release in autumn of this year, it is based upon a fictional future, set in 2035.”
While no resolution is in sight or hinted at it seems authorities are actively involved with the case and will no doubt reach a conclusion soon.
