  • Community Crunch 355: ARK Roadmap, EVO Event, and More!


    Hey there Survivors!

    We’re ready to reveal ARK's roadmap for the next year, covering various game-related initiatives, new platforms, and media.  The community’s support continues to be incredibly humbling and inspiring for the team, and that enthusiasm helps drive us toward creating the ultimate survival franchise. What we’ve planned has changed due to many shifting factors, but we believe it will ultimately provide the most fun and excitement for everyone who enjoys ARK.

    We know you’re eager for the lowdown on our plans and more transparency regarding what’s behind the curtain, what’s evolved, and what has sprung anew, and we’re ready to share that with you… But before starting, we want you to meet our new friend!

    And now, for the roadmap…


    After careful consideration, we have decided to delay the sequel's launch to the end of 2024, when it will still launch exclusively on Xbox, Game Pass, and Windows distribution platforms (Steam/PC). We’ve put much thought into delaying ARK 2 for the betterment of the final product and the team's well-being. This news will be disappointing to many - we feel it too - but we’re confident this heavy decision is the right one.

    So why the delay? Our goal is to make ARK 2 the best game it can be and provide a truly exceptional and rewarding experience for players. Unreal Engine 5 is incredibly new technology to us (and all developers), and we aim to use this cutting-edge tech to its fullest potential while creating a game with never-before-achieved scope at Studio Wildcard. As we learn more about the engine and develop the sequel, we have adapted our workflows and adjusted our pipelines to accommodate this new next-generation paradigm, and because of everything that involves, we need more time for development.

    We sincerely apologize for this delay and genuinely appreciate your understanding. Your support and passion are vital to us, and we will continue to work intensively to deliver the ultimate next-gen dinosaur survival experience. With that in mind, we do not plan to showcase any gameplay/screenshots/videos of ARK 2 this year; however, we intend to keep you informed and engaged in the development process by regularly showcasing more ARK 2 assets in the months ahead, leading to our gameplay reveal next year.

    But! Our desire to push the boundaries of what ARK 2 is on a next-generation platform has led us to the decision to create an intermediary Unreal Engine 5 ARK product utilizing some of the new technology we are building, allowing us to further our mastery of the new engine and ultimately battle-test some of our riskier technical advancements. We’ll gain a deep understanding of how well the rendering and lighting techniques work on console, what performance will be like, whether we can optimize and deliver interactive water and foliage on a widescale basis, and much more. We will deliver cross-platform modding, cross-platform multiplayer & a new account system, informing us about other changes we should consider for ARK 2. Due to the scope of all the technical and QOL changes required for such a next-gen experience, it is not feasible to make this new version of ARK backward compatible, which led us to conclude that this would need to be a separate product.

    We also recognize that ARK 2 has some pretty significant design changes from the original game, which may not make it as appealing to everyone (looking at you, Souls-like combat, primitive-only weaponry, and strict third-person mechanics – and an overall “very serious” tone), which is why we feel it is essential to provide players with a fully next-gen version of the original experience to ensure that fans can continue to enjoy the ARK they know for years to come. 

    We’re thrilled to share this new ARK journey with you this year -- bringing players from PC, Xbox, and PlayStation together in a next-generation version of the game you love, topped off with revolutionary cross-platform modding.

    ARK: Survival Ascended is a next-generation remaster of our beloved ARK: Survival Evolved, harnessing the power of Unreal Engine 5. It will be released on Xbox Series S/X, PC (Windows/Steam), and PlayStation 5 by the end of August 2023. The base game will include The Island, SOTF, and all the “Non-Canon” DLC maps (which will be added to ASA over time). 

    Xbox Series S/X and PC players will only be able to get it via an ultimate-value bundle known as the ARK Respawned Bundle. This bundle includes ownership of both ARK: Survival Ascended AND ARK 2 and will be priced at $49.99. This bundle will be available to purchase from the end of August for up to 1 year (after which ARK: Survival Ascended and ARK 2 will be sold separately). Additionally, the bundle will provide players access to an exclusive 1-month closed-beta to ARK 2 in 2024 before the rest of the general public can play ARK 2.

    PlayStation 5 users will be able to get their hands on ARK: Survival Ascended as a standalone next-gen game at launch in August 2023 for $39.99.

    All the expansion packs will be sold separately on all platforms:

    • $19.99 for Explorer’s Pass, which includes Scorched Earth, Aberration (Q4 2023), and Extinction (Q1 2024).
    • $19.99 for Genesis Pass, which includes Genesis Part 1 (Q1 2024) and Genesis Part 2 (Q2 2024).

    At ARK: Survival Ascended’s launch, players will have access to The Island, Scorched Earth, and the new revamped game mode, Survival of the Fittest.

    In addition to many other new features, ARK: Survival Ascended will feature the following improvements and enhancements:

    • Unreal Engine 5 Overhaul with Nanite, Lumen and RTXDI
    • Dynamic Water
    • Interactive Foliage
    • Unreal Engine 5 performance gains: instanced-rendering (large-bases etc.), threaded server networking, and native physics engine
    • Cross-platform Multiplayer
      • This includes cross-platform accounts and cross-progression, cross-voice chat & friends, etc. No matter what platform you start playing on, you can access your account, character, dinos, and items on a different platform for the ultimate cross-platform experience.
    • Cross-platform Modding
      • We recognize the power of giving players the tools and capability to define their survival experience, so we want to take cross-platform one step further by working with  Overwolf  to introduce an industry-first cross-platform modding experience where mods created on PC are delivered directly to end-users’ consoles from a custom modding backend.
      • The modding capability will include FULL blueprinting support ;), stacked mods, and maps. Everything that is currently possible on the Steam version of ARK: Survival Evolved and more will be possible on the new system and be available for end-users to play on consoles in all modes.
      • Premium Mods: Reviewed by Overwolf and Wildcard for quality control and value, Mod authors will optionally be able to specify price points for their Mods (with 50% of the price point going to the Mod author). This is necessary to pay for the custom infrastructure required for Overwolf to support, administrate, and deliver Mods to the console.
      • We plan on streamlining the process of upgrading legacy ARK: Survival Evolved mods to the next-generation platform. We plan to reach out to current/former sponsored modders in preparation for the launch of ASA with the tools they need to get their mods ready before the launch.
    • Cross-platform Anti-Cheat
    • Survival of the Fittest
      • SOTF will be integrated into the main product as a new fully-supported game mode. It will have a dedicated team that will continue to work on more gameplay changes, mechanical improvements, quality of life, maps, and balance adjustments. The initial mode will be revamped with an exclusive ARK: Survival Ascended update, including:
        • Upgraded to Unreal Engine 5 with complete cross-platform and cross-modding support (the SOTF UE5 source content will be released for modders to utilize as they wish within ASA)
        • Scorched Earth SOTF Map
        • Matchmaking queue
        • Character and Creature customization with cosmetics
        • Local Lobby where you can group up with your friends, configure the look of your survivor and dinos, and queue up for lobbies together
        • Lots of bug-fixes and balance and functionality improvements
    • Art Assets are being upgraded throughout the entire game
    • Newly-designed holiday events take advantage of the next-gen pipeline, released as mods, so they’re always available to play!
    • New content, QOL improvements, balance, and gameplay changes, including but not limited to:
      • Updated mini-map (pan, zoom, pings, etc – similar to the SOTF mini-map)
      • New structures (display cases, smaller TEK Teleporters) & building QOL improvements (snap fixes, increased foundation support, foundation height adjustments, and more)
      • Queueing System
      • New third-person camera (with the option to opt out)
      • Directional Sprinting and Walking
      • Ping system
      • Gamepad cursor
      • Chibi Slot and Skins Tab
      • Balance passes (e.g. Cave Entrances, MEKs, Aberration Creatures, more breedable creatures, etc)
      • …and more! (seriously, a lot more, this list isn’t exhaustive, but it’ll get super long if we list everything, and there’s more we’ll decide to do between now and launch too)


    We understand there will be questions regarding LiveOps for the product, so we’ll review some key areas now. 

    • Final Content Update: In June for ARK’s 8th Anniversary, we’ll release ARK: Survival Evolved’s final content update, which includes the fan-voted Rhyniognatha!
    • Cross-platform: It’s important to note that ARK: Survival Evolved (ARK:SE) and ARK: Survival Ascended (ASA) will coexist but will not support crossplay between the two games. ASA will have undergone profound functional changes which prevent it from being compatible with the previous game. 
    • Holiday Events: We plan to develop and release ASA-exclusive holiday content that takes advantage of the next-gen pipeline released in mods, so they’re always available to play!
    • Official Servers: With the launch of ASA at the end of August, we will be taking down all Official Servers on Xbox, PlayStation, and PC for ARK: Survival Evolved – at that time, the final save-datas from the ARK: Survival Evolved Official Servers will be uploaded for players to re-host on their own servers or play in singleplayer/non-dedi, as well as slightly earlier snapshots. You will still be able to play on single-player, non-dedicated, player-dedicated, and unofficial servers. ARK: Survival Ascended will have its own fully supported Official Network for all platforms.
    • Feature Sunset: With the launch of ASA, we will be ending official support for Primitive+, Split Screen, and Procedurally Generated Maps. These aspects of the game will not be ported to the new Unreal Engine 5 version.
    • We will look into releasing the source files for Primitive+ for those that wish to repurpose aspects of it for mods.
    • ARK: Survival Ascended Updates: The remaster will have regular updates to resolve bugs, introduce new content, balance changes, and quality-of-life improvements for years to come.
    • ARK: Survival Evolved Updates: will be limited to crashes and critical bug fixes. 



    We plan to release a new canonical-story expansion pack for ARK: Survival Ascended that will be available in Q4 2023. This DLC will feature four new creatures, which we’ll share more details about later this year!




    ARK: Ultimate Survivor Edition has been off to a great start on Nintendo Switch. The insightful crew at Digital Foundry called it "one of the most radical improvements in game quality (they've) ever seen." 

    So far, we've launched Scorched Earth, Aberration, and Ragnarok, with Extinction coming on April 11th. Our current estimated timeline for the rest of our significant releases is as follows:

    • April 2023 - Extinction
    • May 2023 - Small Tribes servers
    • June 2023 - Genesis Part 1
    • October 2023 - Genesis Part 2
    • Winter 2023 into 2024 - Remaining community maps

    Spring has been an exciting time on the platform, with the release of the Carcharodontosaurus now roaming around The Island and Ragnarok. Eggcellent Adventure begins on April 3rd, bringing this full event to players on Nintendo Switch for the first time. Lest we forget ARK: Dinosaur Discovery, which also saw a content update to v1.5, recently adding a full-featured in-game map and numerous gameplay improvements. As a reminder, ARK: Dinosaur Discovery is a separate download available for FREE to all digital owners of ARK on Nintendo Switch.

    Finally, we are happy to welcome a swath of new players from Japan, Hong Kong, Taiwan & South Korea. Both titles are now available locally on Nintendo Switch in those regions from our partners at Spike Chunsoft.


    We have some important news for Mobile Survivors! At the year's end, we anticipate a relaunch of ARK: Mobile as a completely revamped product. It will be based on a graphically improved version of the Switch codebase due to the increased power generally available with mobile devices and include new Switch features and content and mobile-specific changes. We plan to release all the expansion packs and non-cannon maps over time into this revamped version, and from that point onwards, ARK: Mobile will have its product lifecycle and roadmap.

    ARK: The Animated Series has completed the animation and cast recordings of all its 14 initial episodes, which are currently in post-production (VFX, sound mix, etc.). We're delighted with how the show turned out -- it's an epic melodramatic love letter to dinosaurs, fantasy/sci-fi, and of course ARK itself -- though we have not placed it yet with any platform, hence the lack of news in that area. So as soon as there's more to report, we will let you know!



    Thank you everyone for reading through this substantial write-up, and stay tuned for more information on the ARK: Survival Ascended in the months ahead toward its August launch!

    This is absolutely frucking pathetic. First, just a couple of months ago, you said the next ARK 2 update would be gameplay, and now not ONLY is the game that was meant to release 6 months ago delayed by a year and a half, but the raptoring GAMEPLAY trailer is delayed by, at minimum, eight months. On top of that, but you lie about the UE5 update being free, but FORCE people to pay raptoring NINETY dollars if they want to continue playing ark 1 DLCs. But this huge expansive overhaul is supposedly coming in four months and you don't even have a raptoring trailer for THAT. How you scammers can call yourselves devs is astounding.

    RIP Wildcard and all those associated with the studio. This crunch ended Ark, not the month of August. 
    Imagine dismissing everyone's time and effort over the years, then trying to sell them a sparkly fresh slate like nothing happened. 
    I have no idea who makes the decisions over there, but clearly they have no idea how to relate to their customers.

    Nice to know that I'm being penalized for being too poor to have a new console by not having access to the full story now. Screw me and anybody else with this issue huh? Can't afford a new Xbox? Well, I guess that means no holiday events, console mods or full story now. This is honestly up there with needing a boujee contract phone to have access to Overwatch 2 when it first came out. Actually, let's take that a step further, this is EXACTLY like Overwatch 2, it's the exact same game as the original, except now you get to pay for everything over again. How long is it gonna be before you take these similarities to the next level and just completely dump the first game off of the game store? Out with the old and the folks that could only afford it, gotta make room for that new-new money huh? You hurt me Wildcard, you cut me deep.

    being "poor" or whatever it doesn't matter the world keeps going new stuff replaces old stuff.  To make new games to upgrade, the old things have to go if you can't see that I don't know what to tell you.

    Are you trying to pull a Cyberpunk? Release the animated series and hope for a new surge of players? Cyberpunk had no players left to begin with, Ark has a insane huge community where people are in the thousands of hours.

    Well, I'm a bit disappointed that I'll have to buy the Remaster and the DLC separate. But honestly, 50 dollars for the remaster and Ark 2? I ain't gonna complain.


    Not disappointed by the delay though. Why? Because I've been expecting it sense day 1. 

    You also have to pay all DLCs again 🤡

    That "joke" likely has people L2ing their best bps and dinos onto the floor right now.

    I hope this is an april fool. I want PvP in Ark 2 and dont want a cheap remake with the same maps/creatures and a player base of 20 players. Then dont call Ark 2, make ASA the new Ark 2. And call the other one Vins Roleplay PvE Souls Adventures. Sad af. I want something Like ASA, but with as much work that gets put into Ark 2 and I dont want it to be called some weird remastered version, I want that version to be called Ark 2. Dont throw the PvP community under a bus... And having to pay for all DLCs again is literally scam, ASA gonna have no players because of the name and of the missing changes like Ark 2 gets. Lets hope its all an april fool.

    Guess they just lost alot of players not starting all over in ark 1 why keep playing to just lose it all in August waste of time thanks wild card time to find a new game to play

    Its not only that, the fact that they basically add nearly nothing really new like in Ark 2, but still want the money, even if people dont want some weird Ark2 Vin Diesel PvE Souls Third Person WoE Game.

    I know that, but seriously, in all honesty, there is less than no reason to lock the rest of the story content and a new map behind a console sized paywall. They could release the story map and new creatures on the original version as well for people that can't or won't upgrade. I'm sorry that being broke is so far out of the scope of your comprehension that you can't understand why some folks are angry about this.

    Let’s be clear here: if you want paid support for the upgrade of the current game, that’s one thing. But to make your current players purchase all of the content again at full price, that’s greedy. My best guess here is that Ark 2 is the big mess it sounded like it was gonna be from the beginning and you’re using ASA to make up for it when ASA should’ve been Ark 2 from the beginning. I won’t be surprised if y’all have to shelf Ark 2 down the line. 

    Oh and thanks for PlayStation players’ $10 “discount” since they can’t access Ark 2 upon release. That’ll really make them feel good about your decision. 

    Make ASA $40 including all current SE evolved DLC and maps. Release paid new content and maps going forward and your players will not struggle with the idea of purchasing the remaster.

    Thanks Wildcard for the time I got to spend playing this game, the gameplay was some of the best ever, but I dont fancy starting again with something slightly prettier. Frankly the game is a buggy mess, the support has been atrocious at best and the only things keeping me playing are the hours I've spent playing and the friends I've made along the way, some of which are still on a PS4. I don't see how upgrading the engine is gonna improve the aspects of the game that many of us have issues with.

    Given the upgrade was meant to be a free upgrade to the already existing servers I think lots of players are gonna be a bit sour about the cost.

    Hopefully this is actually an April Fools and NOT a studio destroying itself.

    FREE it was supposed to be FREE!!! I have been playing since the beginning, I am so saddened by this. WC just crapped all over my love and loyalty for their game, and tried to make me eat it... I refuse. I was excited for Ark 2 I was excited for the remaster, I was excited for SoTF to be  a thing again.. Now I feel like an idiot for buying the first game, SE, Aberration, ... ALL the stinking DLCs.  I refuse to pay 90 bux for things I ALREADY paid full price for. You guys @wildcard are crooks. Truly. I cried. I'm done.

    I'm not even super mad at the delay for ark 2 or the sunset on ark 1. I'm absolutely infuriated that to bypass the sales they'll lose on game pass they're forcing people to preorder a game over a YEAR in advance that will be on game pass anyway just to play an upgrade of the game they already own that was promised to be free. Hopefully this giant wave of backlash can talk some sense into the higher ups at wildcard.

    This had better be an April Fools joke. Giving us a new creature in June only to wipe servers in August. Paywalling the remaster and then locking it behind next gen consoles while taking everything away from those of us who can't afford a new console. Did it not occur to you that not everyone has a Series X/S, or can afford one? Or did you plan on buying us new consoles yourselves


    This is bullslag. Way to alienate your playerbase, Wildcard. If this for some godforsaken reason isn't a joke, you can kiss at least half the community goodbye, because there won't be any reason to continue playing if we're just going to lose it all

    This has got to be a joke. Wildcard and Snail have killed the franchise. We all knew a delay was inevitable, even one as crazy long as this. I'll be amazed if it ever comes out. But to have the audacity to charge us for the Ark unreal 5 release and it's expansions, and tell people they have to start over after nearly a decade of time put in. It's disgusting. I won't be coming along for this anti-consumer crap.

    And when Ark 2 will come, you will close ASA servers too to free the space for Ark 2? 🤣
    If all of that is not a joke, just trash ASA idea and keep what we already have.
    Or you really think that many players would trade all they got through all these years in ASE for new graphics in ASA?
    I will prolly not tell a big secret, but majority of people are playing with modified files and they will not notice the difference.
    And if you need money so badly to keep working on Ark2, ask Diesel, or come to people and just say so, so some might donate or pre-purchase Ark 2 right away without all that bull****.

    I really hope that this is an April Fool's joke with Ark and UE5, if not I'll be terribly disappointed.

    I have no problem paying something for it, but that there will now be different Ark games.
