America’s Army Games Cost $33 Million Over 10 Years

Responding to a Freedom Of Information Act request, the US government has revealed the operating costs of the America’s Army game series over the past decade. The total bill comes to $32.8 million, with yearly costs varying from $1.3 million to $5.6 million.
“While operating America’s Army 3 does involve ongoing expenses, paying the game’s original development team isn’t one of them. Days after the game launched in June, representatives with the Army confirmed that ties were severed with the Emeryville, California-based team behind the project, and future development efforts were being consolidated at the America’s Army program office at Redstone Arsenal in Alabama. A decade after its initial foray into the world of gaming, the Army doesn’t appear to be withdrawing from the industry anytime soon. In denying other aspects of the FOIA request, the Army stated ‘disclosure of this information is likely to cause substantial harm to the Department of the Army’s competitive position in the gaming industry.’”
