  • 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!

    If Wildcard won't even release it, can you imagine how badly broken it must be?  

    I have tried to be positive and argue the merits of this game to angry friends as they jumped ship one by one.  I have never been negative to anyone that works for Studio WC.

    This is unprofessional to do so close to the intended release.  Even worse is that this is not an exception, but the rule.  To continue to pull this kind of a stunt means Studio Wildcard haven't been taught to do otherwise. 

    If I was looking forward to Extinction, I'd be more upset.  I was expecting not to play this for a while as it is - even with delays, Wildcard won't release a finished product.  Besides, a few other games got released recently by developers that finish/test their products before releasing them and actually hit their release dates.  They must look at Studio Wildcard like the Academy Awards look at the Adult Video News Awards; technically it's the same industry, but only one is respected. I assume the others must be raptoring assholes.

    Maybe I'll end up playing Extinction some time next year.  I've had the Season Pass from the beginning. 

    Maybe Studio WC will continue to support and fix ARK's myriad of problems, but I'm not holding my breath for that.

    I'll never buy another game from this company again.

    I wish the developers were half as good as the marketing team.

    I would rather release it on the current date and let players find the bug, cause then they'll (as in should) shrug it off as a bug that always happens at the beginning of a release. it just makes people angrier this way

    Why couldn't we be informed of this a week or two ago 4 days before release really? I've bought your game as new copies twice for both consoles to give you money bc a used copy only supports the reseller. Also had individually purchased first two dlcs on both consoles to give you more money and then bought the season pass twice and all tek skins twice. I defend your name on forums and YouTube videos daily bc I thought you'd finally learned from your mistakes and delayed it so long so it'd be finished or at least thought you'd be kind enough to let us know more than a week before release if it was to be delayed further. Worst of all my faith in you having extinction ready for next week I took tues-thurs off work now. Unbelievable!!!!!!

    My big question that never got answered is am I going to be able to purchase this expansion separate from the others? I have the others already and don't want to be forced to purchase the season pass when I only need the one. Will someone answer that?

    Xbox delayed more than once. Ragnarok is a prime example of Microsoft dragging its heels. As for being thankful for console adopters, I am, But that does not change the reality that console game players are not the best or fastest testbed for new content or to find and fix bugs. Wild Cards problem is once the game full released they quit testing Beta content among the wider community.

    My argument isn't that the console ecosystem is conducive to testing the content.  My argument is that we didn't see significant delays until Sony was added in.  I ran a PDS prior to rentable servers, and we ran all of the Holiday events.  Sony came in, and we've barely seen one since.

    Another issue here is that they already issued a hard release date.  Had they said that they were releasing it to PC first, with the specific intention of testing the content, you wouldn't be seeing the volume of angry you are now.  Yes, Steam is the best option for testing in terms of stability between PC and Xbox: it's the same platform.  The same is not entirely true of Sony, because it isn't the same platform as both PC and Xbox.  Regardless, this is the product of poor management.  My guess is that Sony wasn't ready for submission, again, and someone failed to be the clock.  If PC is ready, Xbox is also ready; again, same platform.

    Yes you will be able to purchase it seperately on the day of release. Also if you buy the season pass it would only cost you the amount of the last DLC as you already have the other DLCs.

    I bet that WC isn't even going to glance at these comments but I am still going to rant anyways. I bought a freaking Xbox one s, specifically so that I could play Extinction. I am 13 years old and 200 bucks is a ton to 13 year olds. I thought that maybe WC would actually release one of their games on time but I guess we were all wrong. The reason I even bought the stupid one s was because their already glitchy game wouldn't even load in and crash on my Xbox one. Well be lucky to have the freaking game by Easter. PC thinks that they're safe but theirs will most likely get an announcement that there plat has been delayed too. They better give something to the console community. Instead of that retarded ARKaeology event they should have been doing something that was actually useful instead of making stupid skins that no one wants. GET OFF YOUR LAZY BUTTS AND ACTUALLY DO SOMETHING! You should all be required to work extra hours. The GM's will say its the "internal policies" which is straight bull crap.                                

    Good job, WC

    This is disgusting behavior,

    People myself included have BOOKED TIME OFF WORK and we can NOT CHANGE THAT

    Ive been saying to all my friends for weeks I shouldent have booked my time off work because I know wildcard will some how raptor me over and I was right what was I thinking actually allowing myself to beleave you might actually stop being such utter cockups

    If this was a thing you should have told us sooner and if this as I suspect is something to do with raptoring playstation then you should be releasing on Pc and Xbox and letting Playstation users wait

    Instead of punishing xbox users for sony being a company thats almost as bad as yourselves wildcard.

    Still no raptoring console mods also you should be ashamed.

    I swear you will never get another dime out of me ever again ARK whilst being one of the best games ive ever played has been continuously overshadowed by the incompetence and ineptitude of the studio behind it and will be the first and last wildcard game I ever buy.

    I haven’t played this game in a year and was thinking about getting the new dlc. This game has been out for about 5 years now I’m pretty sure and every new map is postponed and they can never get there stuff right. You can still indermapp people, they game lags, crashes, they have problems with holiday events, literally the list goes on and on. I thought by now that they would have this figured out. You guys can keep this game going but I’m not support this  trash game with bad developers.

    Hmm

    When did you realise this? Two weeks ago or yesterday. Before the twitter update saying: rel date 6 November PC, Xbox and PS4. 

    I guess spoilers are Incoming.

    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. 

    Because ARK is a PC game. Just face it.

    There is so many bad console ports on the PC (*cough*Fallout 76*cough*), its actually really refreshing to see a true PC game with a bad port to console for a change. ?

    I’m a console player but come on man I really don’t care about bugs right now. I had high hopes we could play it on the sixth but no wildcard finds away to delay it again. WHY we don’t care about better gaming experience at this point.

    Please just fix it along the way. Ps. if you don’t listen to your community saying don’t do it your gonna lose most of the people who still play.
