ARMA 3's storyline takes place in the mid-2030s during the fictional Operation Magnitude, a military operation launched by NATO forces fighting in Europe against "Eastern armies" led by a resurgent Iran.
ARMA 3 is set in the near-future, during the mid-2030s, where NATO forces deployed in the Greek islands of the Aegean Sea are trying to hold off a massive Iranian military offensive from the east.
It seems that the world may be on the verge of a World War as the conflict isn't localized like it was in ARMA 2 in the small nation of Chernarus.
If Bohemia Interactive isn't working 24/7 on Bugs, it would be very cool if they released a steady stream of content that continued the story and they could continue to release Armed Forces DLC of both OPFOR and BLUFOR countries. (but I hope they would include ALMOST everything in the military of Country X)
At the release of ARMA 3 to six months in the future, we could see a handful of NATO Countries and Iran and then BI could "expand" the war. For example, we could see a new campaign in another hot spot. (North Korea Vs. South Korea, Pakistan Vs. India, etc)
It would also be very interesting (but unlikely) that we could choose to play as OPFOR in the Singleplayer Campaign.
