  • Genesis Part 2: Art, Music and June 2 Delay

    We’ve had our heads down as we push to get ARK: Genesis Part 2 across the finish line, and we’d like to take pause and touch base with an update for our community. 

    Firstly, here’s the reveal of the ARK Genesis 2 Main Theme Music, and Key Art -- which contains an important message that’s further explained below:

    This final chapter of the ARK: Survival Evolved story is by far the most intricate and ambitious expansion we’ve yet created! We’re so excited to share it with you and proud of the team’s immense efforts, creativity, and passion. We truly believe Genesis 2 will be something special, and a fitting story conclusion to the journey you’ve taken with us in ARK over the past 6 years, and hope our players will feel likewise!

    As many of you are aware, we transitioned to a fully-remote working environment at the beginning of last year. Shifting from a collaborative in-office workflow to remote comes with unique challenges.

    The massive scope of Genesis Part 2, and our personally set challenge of ending ARK 1 with a bang, was compounded by the team having to work from home all the way through the forthcoming release. We have made the decision to delay the launch by one week, until June the 2nd. Just in time for the 6th Anniversary of ARK! 

    This was a difficult decision for us, since we’re as eager to get Genesis 2 into your hands as you are to play it--but ultimately we feel it’s the right decision to get the new content to our players in the best way on launch day, simultaneously across Steam, Epic Games Store, Xbox, and PlayStation.


    We sincerely thank you for your patience and hope that when you get to play Genesis Part 2 and take the first steps to the end -- or a new beginning? -- that you will agree the wait will have been worth it! 

    As HLN-A would say, “Hang in there, Survivors!” -- we’re almost home.

    - The Studio Wildcard Team

    P.S. Astrodelphis! (AKA Space Dolphins!)

    Curious and inquisitive, the swift Astrodelphis may look like the cetaceans that once swam in Earth's oceans but this variation had loftier dreams and made an interstellar home amongst the stars, evolving unique traits. 


    Equip a Starwing Saddle, and you have a sentient spacecraft capable of blasting targets into oblivion.

    Yo u guys dont even know what programming is like huh? Suprise bugs happen like all the time and its only a week why complain so much? Feel bad for the people who took free days for the release tho. But stop complaining they want it to be really special and not full of bugs 

    The thing is - who cares about their "wants". People paid money and expect to get good product. And what do we have? This survival game is the worst (among others) as far as optimisation, bugs, glitches, badly executed mechanics are concerned. Noone says that it's a bad game. I'm a gamer for a long time. And I'm ensure you - Ark is a horribly executed game. There haven't been even 1 game as baddly done as this one. And the worst support to top it all off.

     

    I play Ark for along time. But I lost alot of things because of it's glitches and serever problems. I'm thankful for the game. But If you ask me - the developpers SHOULD be scolded for this kind of release. They DO a great job but it's not enough if you get bad experience when you play. There might be less content, less territories. BUT There shouldn't be things that ruin the whole experience (like server problems and glitches that destroy all you've done for monthes )

    I don't mind the one week delay, but....it can't be the 'best way' really, unless you release the PS5 upgrade at the same time. And dammit, I literally just got mine yesterday just in time for this last DLC and I want to play it in all it's glory!

    Do you guys just crank out sh*t on purpose? Or do you guys actually try? Very lazy company always taking short cuts hence why the game isn’t optimized yet holy hell

    I always feel so much better about myself after reading these posts, lol. The player base's salt literally sustains me at this point. All you people that claimed to have been playing this game since launch crack me up. If this is true, why wouldn't you expect another delay? WC has literally never met a release. You should know better than to trust a date until it's fully downloaded and you've already been playing it for a few days, hahaha. Also, stop lying to yourself and others about uninstalling the game. You're not going anywhere. Just shut up and enjoy it when we get it. 

    Last thing, the other half of you gotta stop simping these devs. We all know they suck. Just admit it. We still play their garbo game anyway. It is what it is.

    If you're taking time off work for a video game that's NOT going anywhere , you MAY want to rethink , your Priorities ......   just sayin

    Some people get their time off paid...so they can do things they want to do, and still get paid for it...lots of keyboard warriors thinking people are choosing video games over work that don’t know what they’re talking about.

    We are in the same boat with same conditions as devs.

    We also play from home like devs work form home.

    And still our willing to do it is a lot higher than those devs at home.

    Maybe devs have some issues with their homes, fire them.

    Get homeless devs.

    I started to play ark when the game was still EA, 6 years go, ending this journey is kinda sad. But I'm ready to kick Rockwell's ass once again and for the last time under, i bet, an epic battle music. Gareth is never a disappointment :D i already love the main theme of this new DLC! 

    Thanks guys for everything you have done for us! 

    What i can say? Ad maiora! I hope Ark2 will allow you to do even greater things! You never disappointed me :D

    I see a lot of people saying that they should warn us earlier and that sort of thing, and yeah no one is happy about the delay.... but you have to realize in a game, especially one like ark a glitch or file that just does not let the game run, and if they leave it in there and it ends up being like when summer bash came out for xbox, or when cryopods update came out for xbox, or any of these other things that just make it hard to even want to play ark when you spend all of your time reloading the game just because you wanted to craft a cryo... or in the summer bash's case, you just wanted to play the game in general so you cant say "oh they need to let us know sooner" because it could just be that they actually didnt know sooner

    I swear I can see the future. WC announced this may release and I knew like a fox it was gonna be delayed again. So I booked a week off work the week after and low and behold it's pushed back a week. Happy days 😁

    All these losers saying they took off time work just to play a game... My God do you not hear yourselves?! How childish can you be! Be a professional and keep games to the side and focus on yer actual work or non existent loved ones.

    You'd have to be a moron to be surprised about arks awful launch states even after multiple delays, but judging by some of the blind faith posts here, that seems to be exactly what were dealing with.

    yup, youre new to ark or a big troll the end.

    Yes! You should only take off work if you can cure cancer or something in a week or two. Holidays aren't for enjoying stuff and relaxing, they're to better mankind, you damn losers!!!!!

    Glitch what glitch, There is no glitch that is big enough in genesis part 2 to even delay it. If there was they would need at least a month to fix it, they would of known for awhile  and they would told us of it, they could just release the game and just do patches that would better then delaying. its likely that there  trying to release the game on pc and console at the same time, that is just a bad idea over all. Screw console for there  scams and badly designed system, if this is the case just release part 2 for pc on May 26 and for console release it on June 2. But the most likely is theres nothing wrong with the game at all and they just want to release it on the anniversary what is not ok in any shape or form. in the end they had the time to tell us before being delayed with in the same week. When you keep doing crap like that people just dont want to play. The only way you can get people hyped again is if you dont delay or somehow out of the nowhere to release early. These sneak peaks and x5 taming just dose not cut it. the amount of hope I have for this game is vary little right now and soon planning on just deleting the game.

    Nothing new. I just hope Genesis 2 is more then 8 Unique Creatures, 11 new items, some Plants, a Map and a Boss fight. And please note not a fan of having to grind 50,000 missions just to fight the Boss. I miss Ark.
