SITUATION

The development team is currently evaluating reports from players who have experienced issues after the release of Update 1.64. To address the most problematic issues, we're preparing a small hotfix to the game. However, since some of the planned changes require thorough multiplayer testing, we will not yet be able to release the hotfix this week.

SITUATION

We're approaching another important step in the post-release support of Arma 3 and the finalization of the roadmap for the upcoming year. The development team has been busy outlining the future products, starting the pre-production phases, and brainstorming within the departments. Aside from that, a hotfix to the game is in the works; we hope to release it very soon if things go well. While progress on Arma 3 might not always be visible to public eyes, plenty of new exciting things are happening behind the curtains. We can't wait to start sharing bits of Intel in the upcoming weeks.

SITUATION

Coming in at the end of last week, we unveiled the 2016-17 roadmap for Arma 3. Meanwhile, the development team has started brainstorming, pre-production, and in some cases already production itself on the newly announced packages. We'll talk a bit more about the roadmap later in this SITREP, but one thing is clear: Arma 3 has a splendid future ahead of itself!

PRECEDENCE: Flash

SITUATION

The development team is now fully focusing on a clean sweep of the game. This means that for the next couple of weeks we're solely fixing bugs, focusing on performance and minor, yet long-standing issues, and polishing the game. As a consequence, all of the work is under a lock - only approved and manually selected pieces of data get in the final game and the rest has to wait until the lock is released. The plan is to finish this sweeping period by delivering Update 1.66. Hopefully, after we have results of some first build checks done by our Quality Assurance, we'll be able to publish the Release Candidate by the end of this week.

The development team is now experiencing the freezing beauty of European winter. All the more reason for us to run away to the warmer regions of Altis and Tanoa! Over the past two weeks, we've introduced several platform improvements, released three security updates, and announced a new contest for our creative community. In parallel, our teams in various physical locations are also hard at work on the various deliverables of the 2017 roadmap. Let's take a look!

SITUATION

After a short Easter break, the Arma 3 development team is working together with BRAVO ZERO ONE Studios to apply the finishing touches to the Jets DLC. Internally, we have entered a Data Lock period. That means that every change to the internal development build of the game will now need to be individually reviewed and approved to ensure a smooth and stable build. Prepare to take off, this REPort will be full of Jets details!

SITUATION

This week's SITREP is a little light on fresh development news, but that is not to say there's nothing going on. In fact, it's the opposite! While we're not quite ready yet to unveil more details on the upcoming Arma 3 "Orange" DLC, our Amsterdam team is working hard to finish and polish the last bits and pieces ahead of its official reveal announcement. Meanwhile, our brave developers in other locations are improving and fixing a few long-term standing issues in Arma 3. Of course, the other DLC on our Roadmap, Tac-Ops and Tanks, are also in full production and approaching some important internal milestones.
