ArmA developer acquires three (yes, three) other development studios

Bohemia Interactive, the Czech Republic-based development team behind the ArmA series of military shooters (as well as the first Operation Flashpoint game) has just announced that it has fully acquired three more Czeck-based game developers: Black Element Software, Altar Games and Centarui Production. Financial terms were not disclosed but the press release stated all three developers will work on their own game projects but will also work cooperatively.

Black Element Software has released action and first person shooter titles such as Shade: Wrath of Angels and Alpha Prime in the past. Altar Games is known for its X-Com inspired turn-based strategy games UFO: Aftermath, UFO: Aftershock and UFO: Afterlight. Centauri Production has released family-themed games as well as adventure titles like Memento Mori.

The newly expanded Bohemia Interactive is working on a number of upcoming games including the previously announced action-strategy game Carrier Command: Gaea Mission. A newly revealed title is Point of Ground, a third person action game with "tons of zombies". It also plans to continue supporting and developing its military shooter series.
