In an upcoming live stream, Arma and DayZ developer Bohemia Interactive wants to present the future of the Arma series. Fans are naturally hoping for the announcements of a new title, but can the dream of Arma 4 or at least Arma: Reforger really come true? Our Arma expert and chief editor Kevin Willing gets to the bottom of this question.
What’s going on? Bohemia Interactive announced last night that there will be a livestream on the future of Arma as early as next week Tuesday. The Czech developer has never announced such pompous innovations for Arma 3 before. Fans, therefore, believe that this must be the next Arma game. The statement that fans can expect something “big” only makes the salty noodle water of anticipation boil up even more.

Livestream on the Arma series: is it really Arma 4 or Reforger?
What is Arma Reforger? What is behind a possible Arma 4 in theory, fans can certainly guess. It gets trickier with the question: “What is Reforger?”. Explained very briefly, Arma: Reforger is a leaked project from Bohemia Interactive, which according to those leaks should appear before Arma 4. Reforger is supposed to have the following key features:
- Cold War setting
- Return to the first map Everon
- Exclusively multiplayer
- First game based entirely on the Enfusion Engine.
However, the existence of Reforger has never been officially confirmed. Perhaps this could be the case next Tuesday, May 17, 2022. But surely the developer must be working on something? Don’t worry, the studio is busy:
What does Bohemia have in the works? Officially, we know nothing about an upcoming Arma game. Nevertheless, the developer has something in the pipeline that we can expect soon quite officially: The Enfusion Engine, on which all upcoming games from the Czechs are to be based. They have also already implemented parts of the engine in DayZ with update 0.63.
Over the past year, you could always discover small screenshot snippets on the engine’s website. These picture puzzles are from the new engine and show the map Everon. In the meantime, the screenshots have been presented completely openly by the developer and are fully visible. In the same breath to the release of the images, the developers have promised to release a playable demo of the Enfusion Engine soon.
What is the most likely scenario for the stream?
The most likely scenario is that you will get a glimpse of the new Enfusion engine in the livestream about the future of Arma. With any luck, the devs will then make a demo version of the engine available for download and testing at the same time.
Unlikely is an announcement of Arma 4. Looking forward to it can be dangerous. However, a first reveal is not impossible. Even safer here would be Arma: Reforger, as the well-known leaker Biosphere shares on Twitter.

The leaker Biosphere, who is private on Twitter, even shares supposedly real concept drawings for Reforger. He writes that the setting actually goes back to the Cold War and is supposed to be set on the map Everon.
The leaker also wants to know that the new Arma Reforger will be released for PC and Xbox. Only time will tell what the stories are true in the end. We are eagerly awaiting the upcoming live stream about the future of Arma.
When does it start? As a reminder, the stream will take place on May 17, 2022 at 7:00 pm CET. The stream will be broadcasted on the official twitch channel of arma! To make sure you don’t miss anything, follow us on Facebook and join our wonderful community on Discord!
