In June 2011, Bohemia Interactive re-released Operation Flashpoint as Arma: Cold War Assault, as Codemasters retain the rights to the Operation Flashpoint trademark.

This release does not include the Red Hammer expansion, which was developed by Codemasters. The game uses Real Virtuality game engine.

The name alludes to the REFORGER maneuver.
