I know ARMA is like legos and burger king (have it your way) but this zombie thing is killing me and most of the new clientele are worse then the typical run and gun console players that usually play battlefield,COD,GRAW RB6 ect at least they were into a military game and not RPG/MMORPG. What's next for DAY Z adding vampires that you need to stake in the heart or werewofls that you need to cap with a silver bullet to kill.
I am happy for BOHEMIA and there recent success financially and with expanding the game engine use for other games ie take on helicopters, command carrier, and now Iron Front Liberation 1944 however, this has me very concerned about the future of the real tactical shooter presents in the market. I have been a long time supporter of bohemia going back to the split with codemasters and have always been in bohemia's corner. Bohemia said that ARMA 2 was going to be the last game in the series a while back so when AO,BAF/PMC content was announced as well as ARMA3 people stopped thinking about the statement the company made a while back. What is the real long term direction (market plan) for the company? Is it outsourcing the game engine to other developers to use as they see fit. Is it making more RPG/MMORPG titles? Lets face it real tactical shooters like ARMA is a small target market. Why do you think all the others have changed the fundamental game core? To capture a bigger piece of the market share. I truly hope we are not seeing this shift from bohemia. Only time will tell the truth.
