  • A Message from Studio Wildcard

    Given the situation in the US, and the rest of the world right now, we will be rescheduling the ARK in-game celebration until Thursday, June 11. We understand that our community has much anticipated the ARK in-game party and the launch of Crystal Isles, and we're looking forward to sharing all we have prepared for you next week. We felt it would be inappropriate to celebrate milestones during the present time as there are bigger things afoot, and that outweighs any plans we otherwise had. We believe now is the time to be respectful and hear the voices of others.

    While i do agree it may have been better to say this a couples days or a week ago but their choice is a good one as you don't know whats going on in the devs lives and their are the rioters and looters that are distracting people from the protesters who are actually trying to make a change. The postponement may be a disappointment but its the right choice.

    Posting this right before release?
    What a load of BS
    This is a lame ass excuse.
    WC, you were not ready as always with content and shame on you for using an existing social crisis to cover up your failings.

    Freaking shame on you.

    I am so disappointed by everyone. There are literally people being murdered. Abused. Sentenced to jail because we are trying to change our country for the betterment of a race. So what they're not prepared to handle an event and also the release of a new map. Yeah, i get it. they're not on time like always. But take a look around in the world. Please. Can you not put yourself into someone else's shoes and have a little bit of faith? I guarantee you a lot of people would be saying the complete opposite if these things were supposed to be released on time. "how dare they when innocent people are rioting and being beaten"
    This is an American based game. Ced is fighting the long fight. We are all ready for change. Get your heads out of your butts for just enough time to see that they're trying to be considerate.
    Everyone's lives matter right now. You guys should be angry, but this is not the time or place to be.

     

    WC isnt delaying it because of the Protests, their doing it because like always they delay in the last 24 hrs & their just using this as an excuse to delay crap yet again because like always they fail to meet any deadline they place. I'm not saying this as a selfish person, im saying this as someone thats played ark since their beta, this isnt about the protests, its about their bad ethic and im pretty sure thats why other people are saying the same stuff. They COULD have delayed this DAYS sooner if it was REALLY about the BLM Movement & the George Floyd Protests. Especially when people DO take valuable days off work if they are able to OR need/want a distraction IRL due to the pandemic/Job losses right now.

    All lives matter. You idiot. Your helping the division..

    The issue is that Black People are dying and being killed and mistreated and more by the police. No one Disputes that All Lives Matter but the main issue is Black Lives are being taken away and classified in a sub group instead of treated in the phrase "All Lives Matter".

    I still think Wildcard was not ready for Launch which I can refer to the 5 year track record of delays unfortunately.

    Fully support your decision. As all other games are doing same 

    #blacklivesmatter

    #staysafe

    It would be different if WC hasn't missed/pushed back almost EVERY deadline they've had.

    They're using this as an excuse for their inability to keep a schedule. I love this game and I try to support the mods where I can, but taking advantage of the situation of the world right now is just sad... The murder was horrible, the riots, stealing, looting is horrible, the covid scare and just the state of the world is just horrible,  please don't take advantage of that and use it as an excuse.

    Wow. I knew I shouldn't have read the comments.

    So much selfish BS crying. There's massive protest occurring across an entire nation and all some of you can think of is an upgrade of an existing DLC and some anniversary boosts. Get over yourselves, you narrow minded, self-centered jackballs.

    Way to keep things classy Ark community.

    3. Yes, all lives matter, but not all lives are treated equal, fair, or just and that is what #blacklivesmatter is about. You cannot say ALL lives matter when there are so many still being persecuted and treated unequally just for the color of their skin. 

     

    You are only making this situation worse.

    I have never been racist, nor my wife, nor the vast majority of people alive today. Your statement would erase all the changes made in the past hundred years of human rights. Is there racist people? Yes. Is it just 1 group? NO. Most people treat each other with respect and dignity.  Have you rallied behind the cause of native Americans, Chinese citizens, women in Sharia law areas, or any other group? This whole "black lives matter" . How are these protests actually effective?  When you say " black lives matter" you tell every other group that they shouldn't matter, this is not the days of wide spread racism. There is a small group of people of Every race who hates other races. Those people are nut jobs, whacks and dare I say backward thinkers.

    Oh well.  Does this mean u guys at WC are going to address the server issues with that extra added delay (mass kicks and crashes), cos once the event goes live its gonna be a shambles and unplayable anyway. What a way to celebrate 5 years of ARK

    And yet you also say "black people". I am an American, not native American, not white American, not Irish American. I am American. The more you group people the more you divide people.

    Really? Sure it is bad but, wouldn't it be better to spread some positive energy in the form of this Celebration instead of delaying it? This is imo a bit of a sad excuse to just delay it.

    I stand in solidarity with black people. Ark players are primarily white and it's about time we experience some dissapointments, setbacks and letdowns so we can feel the pain experienced by African Americans. I support the event/new map being postponed until racial disparity is 100% solved in the US and abroad. Black Lives Matter

    What do you mean feel the pain experienced by African Americans? if a release date delay is considered pain from the African Americans then that is ridiculous! its much worse than that! we should be not be feeling our other races pain! instead we should be helping them feel the way we feel which is good!

    Something definitely looks unequal here...

    but that is the issue . Its the officers that are putting people in groups. saying BlackLivesMatter is saying "hey we don't want to be grouped so you can murder" Hope you understand no one wants to fear dying for just breathing.

    So you couldn‘t have announced that earlier? Thanks a lot. I‘m working in healthcare and with the current situation I have to work overtime, so I barely have time to play the game at the moment. I took the next week off because of the event, and now it gets delayed for a week? That‘s just stupid

    so all the murders in Africa or Iran or Afghanistan  or anywhere means we should wait for new content also? as ALL LIFE MATTERS YES?
