Established in 1999 in Prague, Czech Republic, Bohemia Interactive is an independent game development studio that focuses on developing original state of the art computer entertainment and simulation software, including the research of proprietary advanced real-time 3D graphics, artificial intelligence and physical simulation technologies for real-time interactive environments.
Operation Flashpoint*, Bohemia Interactive's debut game published by Codemasters in 2001, became the No. 1 best-selling PC game around the world and has won many international awards, including “Game of The Year” and “Best Action Game.” It was later renamed to Arma: Cold War Assault.
Bohemia Interactive’s second major release, Arma: Armed Assault, followed in 2007, and in the same year, the Arma: Queen’s Gambit expansion pack was released.
Arma 2, another hit in the series of tactical military shooters, released worldwide during summer 2009 and was placed in the top positions of official PC charts around the world immediately thereafter. Arma 2 won "Most PC" Game in the 2009 PC Gamer Awards and is featured 14th in their "Best PC Game of all time".
Following the release of Arma 2, the standalone expansion pack Arma 2: Operation Arrowhead was developed. This massive expansion was strongly received by both critics and fans alike; reviews considered it as surpassing the previous title and building on its strong mil-sim heritage. The ‘Armaverse’ was then expanded further by the hugely popular British Armed Forces (BAF), Private Military Company (PMC) and the Army of the Czech Republic (ACR) DLCs. To date, the Arma series has sold over 5 million units.
In November 2011, Bohemia Interactive released Take On Helicopters - an authentic civilian helicopter game set in a virtual recreation of Seattle. It was well received, with multiple reviewers praising its refreshing take on the flight sim genre. The game was reinforced shortly after by the Take On Helicopters: Hinds expansion pack and the free Noisecontrollers and Rearmed DLCs.
About a year later, in October 2012, Bohemia Interactive shipped Carrier Command: Gaea Mission for Windows PC and Xbox 360. Based on the classic game from 1988, it was the first multiplatform title to launch under the Bohemia Interactive flag.
Arma 3, the most recent instalment in the successful Arma series, was released on September 12, 2013. Starting with the Arma 3 Alpha in March, people were invited to participate in the game’s development ahead of the game‘s official release. Building upon the Alpha’s massive success, the game transitioned into Beta in June – bringing along further refinements as well as new playable content. The final game introduced new playable and sandbox content, plus the massive 270 km² Altis terrain. The official singleplayer campaign is scheduled for release across three DLC episodes.
In the same year, the Arma franchise also moved into the turn-based strategy genre, with the release of Arma Tactics on Android, iOS, PC, Linux and Mac. Holding on to Arma’s signature freedom, players take control of a four-member Special Forces team, tasked with a diverse set of missions and no given strategies or rails to move on.
Most recently, after the studio saw its open attitude towards modding rewarded by the massive success of the DayZ survival mod for Arma 2: Combined Operations, Bohemia Interactive announced a partnership with DayZ creator Dean Hall to create a standalone version. After approximately one year of development, the DayZ’s Alpha build was released. Even though the game is still an Early Access title, it instantly became the top seller on Steam, with over 1,000,000 copies sold in the first four weeks. DayZ is expected to reach its Beta milestone in more than a year.
Bohemia Interactive is currently also expanding its Take On series with the brand new space exploration sim game: Take On Mars. In Take On Mars, players take on the role of a Rover Operator to explore real-life locations on Mars. The game is currently available on Steam Early Access. Its full release is expected somewhere in 2014.
Bohemia Interactive won the 2001 Best PC Game Developer award at London’s ECTS exhibition, Rookie Studio of the Year award at GDC 2002, and the Independent Studio 2014 award at the Develop Awards in Brighton.
In 2010, Bohemia Interactive - a strong proponent of committing to the talent and experience of local development resources - completed the acquisition of two established and internationally known development studios within the Czech Republic. In 2014, Bohemia Interactive opened a new studio in Slovakia. These are:
Altar Games formed in Brno from industry professionals, who worked in the gaming industry for many years and participated in development of renowned PC titles, such as Original War - an RTS published worldwide by Virgin Interactive, the UFO series (UFO: Aftermath and it's sequels UFO: Aftershock released in 2005 and UFO: Afterlight released in 2007) and puzzle games Fish Fillets 1 & 2.
Black Element Software is a Prague-based studio formed in 2000 with two strongly received titles under its belt already in Shade: Wrath of Angels released in 2004 and Alpha Prime released in 2007. The studio had previously cooperated with Bohemia Interactive on the development of Arma: Queen's Gambit and has recently delivered Carrier Command: Gaea Mission, an action-packed strategy game for Windows PC and Xbox 360.
In 2014, Bohemia Interactive opened a new studio in Bratislava, Slovakia - as part of the Czech company's portfolio of next generation game development studios.
