Today Studio Wildcard announced that Ark: Survival Evolved will be delayed past its initial August 8th release date and will now release August 29th for the PS4, Xbox One and PC.
Ark: Survival Evolved Release Date Delayed
The game has been in early access since 2015 and its long awaited full release was just around corner. Fans will instead have to wait just a little bit longer to get their hands on the full content. According to the developer the delay is due to the process of going gold, so fans can take heart that it’s just logistics and not polish that’s causing the delay.
The Ragnarok map DLC and upcoming PC update will now be delayed to coincide with the new release date of August 29th, which will give Studio Wildcard an opportunity to now expand the new content, increasing the size of the overworld by about a quarter at launch. The update will add new biomes, gear, a new boss and more. Additionally they’ll be adding some custom creatures in the DLC which can be transferred over via the CrossArk system.
Until release, the developer plans to spend time on PC updates and performance issues as well multiplayer improvements.
