This just in from sunny Greece. Two members of the ArmA development team, Bohemia Interactive, were arrested by the Greek authorities on charges of espionage, the studio has confirmed. Two Czech devs were caught when they were taking photographs and making videos of local military camps on the island of Lemnos, as reported by News247.
The photographs were meant to be used to help the development of ArmA 3, which was their explanation (and, clearly it didn't work).
"This is true," says Bohemia Interactive's Marek Spanel via the company's official forum. "We prefer this topic not to be discussed on our forums at the moment, at least until we know more specific details about the case."
Having been charged with spying, the two devs were threatened with a 20-year maximum prison sentence. They were incarcerated for six weeks, after which they were released on a £9000 bail.
