  • Important Update Regarding Extinction On Console

    Hello Survivors,

    Today we have some important news regarding the launch of ARK: Extinction on console (Xbox and PS4). After careful consideration, we have decided to move our release date for the console release of Extinction to no later than November 13th. 

    This change does not affect the Steam release of Extinction, which will still be available for purchase on November 6th, at 10am PST.

    We know this news will come as a disappointment to our console survivors, but we believe that this extra time will result in an improved experience for everyone who plays Extinction on console. 

    Thank you for all your patience and support - we know that Extinction will be worth the wait!

    Why do console player have to pay the exact same amount and get treated like dirt? Still no conquest servers and a late release of extinction, great. And I will go further to ask if there will be any form compensation for the incompetence.

    Knew it. We’ll be lucky to see it on console before Christmas and if it is before Christmas, it will probably be full of bugs.

    Now I feel the need to ask....how many servers will be up and running on the 13th? Should I start asking when the next server release is? This stuff really makes me nervous.

    I was actually happy to have something to look forward to on Election Day, I guess not anymore. Honestly, I’d rather play extinction how it is on release than having to wait one more week for it to be less buggy. Please Wildcard, don’t make us wait to long, I’m really excited for this DLC and don’t want to loose my hype.

    So you drop a ridiculous teaser awhile back that basically gave us stupid Dino piles for skins! Then cancel a Halloween event to give more focus on Extinction and yet you still can’t release a map on time? Seriously get it together, I’ve been gaming for years and haven’t such shoty developers! Stick to your timeline, work longer days if you have to in order to deliver a product on time! And only 4 days before the release? You had to have known further in advance, right? But you have time to do a fundraiser and give 8x for official? You are a full release game and are liable for what you do now! Get it together already!

    More like they are just trying to convince console players to waste even more money and buy it on pc as well as already on the console. 

    Im hoping we’ll at least get an update that’ll let us cheat summon the new creatures on the 6th, after this definitely not buying the dlc.

    Yeah, I'm guessing their priority is PC... It's unfair they pay less attention to console players. I'm disappointed but not surprised. I know that Xbox has a longer cert process than other platforms. Either way, it blows.

    so not only have we got no x2 this weekend both before and after this flawed event which will will need in order to feed/finish the other minimum 6days on the gigas. the people that booked the launch date off work have now been told 3days before release that its pushed back? You guys take one step forward and then take two steps back and we are the ones that suffer.
    I'll say the say thing i told GM Argos about wildcards customer service in regards to your bugs/errors which cause US the players(your customers) to lose real life days and nights with out a fair compensation. COMPLETE WASTE OF OUR TIME AND EFFORT, USELESS..

    When will our voice matter? when will GMs stop telling the loyal players that "internal policies" prevent them from giving us an equal or better compensation for our time. 
    Are you guys going out of your way to lose players on purpose?? i can pretty much assure you that the next wildcard developed game will not get the amount of attention you will hope for.

    What a waste, nice one WC

    Lazy POS sitting behind screens blowing console off. Im not shelling out for a 1500$ machine just to play ark. We were promised Nov 6 and some ppl even skipped plans just to play your inconsistant game. GET OFF YOUR LAZY ASSES AND DO SOMETHING

    Sony and MS taking a Quality test before they releasy any content on their consoles, this release candidate has to hit 2 weeks before ( if iam right ) they wanna release it. I think all 3 versions ( xbox/ps/steam ) have the same status, but steam may dont use this qualitiy control.
