Well well well... We all know for the last 3 years that communication is not your strong point WC... so much so the only communication we do get as a community is a recycled repeat of a delay notice,

So... Late December? Jesus Christ guys. You should have waited the same way you did with SE

Hey Survivors! Welcome to ARK News!  We are unfortunately crunched for time this week and won't be able to write up a proper Community Crunch. But here is what's going on in the world of ARK!

Although we all know what the Mysterious Mystery is..... it's that thing from Stranger Things 2! :o

Woot Aberration's getting closer! The days fly by so fast these days it will be here before we know it! And in the meantime we still got the rest of ARK to enjoy until then! :Jerblove:

Except those of us that have been playing since Alpha and have played through all the content and are holding off on playing Ark till the DLC drops so we don't burn out on playing Ark while waiting for it.

Yeah, I'm on the same page as are quite a few people I know. The burnout has reached uncomfortable levels and I'm just not willing to exhaust what content I have left. I've finally reached the tek tier but am reluctant to use any of it and I have quite a few dinos left to get mutations on. Since this is the only end-game, I'm not touching it until after Aberration so the journey can last. Also, I'm hoping to see the TLC patch before returning to the base game as some dinos desperately need some love.

Not going to hold my breath and hype the third DLC, I'm just accepting in advance that it'll be delayed by several months. With any luck the Crystal Isles map will be close to completion by the time I get burned out by Aberration. I have a feeling that it'll become an official DLC.

As for this dodgy release date nonsense, the October prediction for Aberration was given in early September. I can understand needing an extra 2-4 weeks, but if it really does release at the end of December then that goes to show that something went very wrong, or they simply don't have a team large enough to handle the DLC in the time they were given (on top of having to neglect the base game).

While I would prefer if they held off on announcing dates they can't stick to, I am very eager to see this "final" release date.

If it is late December, I imagine these forums and reddit will blow up with anger so I get their reluctance to give us a date.

I really don't want to be that guy but you guys said we would get a concrete release date sometime after twitchcon. I know that you said here it'll be revealed soon but then again that's what you said about aberration when the first trailer dropped. I guess all I'm saying is that I hope the date comes out sooner rather than later.

You must be relatively new here. They either lie, are incredibly terrible at time management, or have no idea what there doing and are figuring it out as they go all the while throwing out release dates that don’t mean poop. So don’t worry about being “that guy” sometimes I wonder if they would say anything at all if people didn’t weren’t constantly badgering them. So basically keep up the good work.

Really sad to see so much anger and disappointment.

I am too disappointed by many things but not a single positiv comment is really  upsetting me.

Yeah this game has flaws, yes the promised 1080p performance mode on xbox one x is a joke, but since we figured out how to join our nitrado server, we were having so much fun that the flaws really aren't that much of a concern to us.

I hope we will see more mods becoming official like S+ because the building possibilities haven't changed that much from the release of ark. I like to decorate more and have more options to light up my village.

I think WC needs so rebalance some things like the camera and give us more attachable light like tek light in low tier levels.

I was so sick of not being able to change direction of the electrical cables from the generator that I admin spawned tek lights and hell yeah these lights are so awesome!

Please devs look at fallout and their building system.

Power transmitting items and wireless powered objects are way more fun than these ugly power cables which are more frustrating than fun.

Building should be fun and not a pain in the ass like many things are at the moment. 

Next thing is the camera. Why is this so expensive? I spawned it and took pictures of all tribe members and placed their pics and a wall in the middle of the village and it so much fun decorating the village with funny snapshots, that I was really sad, that it is so expensive, many players won't build it because it's waste of ressources.

Everything fun should be cheap because you don't have an advantage in pvp for example. 

Maybe you guys think it over ;)

Maybe another fun option would be that the color you can create, you can put them into torches and create other lightcolors than just red and blue.

And please make the mod official that torches and lights only are active during night time.

Thanks guys for an awesome game and keep working on it!

HEY LOOK it only took you 1 year exactly after you announced a December 2016 release date at ID @Xbox. Lets face it though we are all expecting Early 2018. Hey wait...if its a weeks long certification process after 100% completion...how did you expect to have it out less than 2 weeks after September 15th when you still weren't done? 

Microsoft forced them to use Microsoft's anti cheat system instead of Battle Eye, which WC worked on for a long time, delaying implementation of Play Anywhere after game premiere significantly.  WC just can't openly say that.

I'm so sick of these guys pushing dates back.I only bought the xbox one version (I already owned this game on Steam) because one of my non PC friends got it when it came out in early access or xbox preview or whatever and WAAAAY back then they said we'd soon be able to host our own servers on pc. Now that's getting pushed to at least December, but that's probably just another lie. I'm already tired of the god damn game, yet I'm going to have to set up a server and suffer through grinding up another character with my xbox friends if that ever becomes an option. Starting to wish I could refund the xbox version.

They said at the end of September they decided they needed  BattleEye fully functioning for a proper experience: this is 4 weeks post launch. Lets say the news arrived from Microsoft shortly after their late September update, guaranteeing no question as to the window of this statements validity: If they didn't touch Battleye until August 29th and worked on it till September 30th they lost 4 weeks on a non functioning Battleye and you would have to add several weeks for the Windows certification. They then expect to complete Windows anti cheat by their December window giving them 8-12 weeks development time for a fully functioning anti cheat and accounts for several (lets say at least 2 ) weeks of Microsoft certification. If they started Battleye a month before launch 8 weeks dev +2 weeks certification for a non working anti cheat, 2 months=12weeks dev +2 weeks cert. Lets say 6 months before release they were working on Battleye to get Play Anywhere working 28 weeks development +2 weeks cert for a non functioning Battleye. WORST OF ALL If they started December 2016 when they told XBOX themselves it would come out we are talking 43 weeks development + 2 weeks certification for a non working Battleye anti cheat. It them becomes a question of WHEN did they decide something as core as an Anti Cheat was needed? When did they start trying to make Play Anywhere work? See the longer you say they were dedicated to it the worse it looks. I guess it makes sense Microsoft would put the screws on Studio WC lol Its making them look bad: that year old "Coming Soon" eyesore on their Play anywhere list.

For me this post says it all. 1 year late, bad communication and customers still waiting to get their hands on the PC version that was part of the play anywhere offer that i bought. Since then the game has had tons of DLC, tons of patches and tons of extras developed while ignoring customers who PAID FOR a game that they are still waiting to be delivered over a year ago! At this point I think microsoft need to update their site from "coming soon" to "good luck!". Also, for the money i paid to get the game with play anywhere i could have bought it and been playing it on steam and my xbox separately for about 6 months now. Lets hope by not having the DLC, because there is NO WAY im giving them more money!, that i can still enjoy the BASE game without needing the DLC otherwise it will have been a year long wait and a total waste of time and money!

this is the post saying people feel entitled, but I now realize I misread the post somehow. Silly brain ? 

Gotcha, thanks for the clarification. In context, this doesn't seem that bad. The gaming community can be downright toxic to our sisters in arms sometimes. And it happens to the best of us.

Dear Wilcard

I support you thoughroly and truly but COME ON.

Abberation is only out before end 0f 2017

STOP THE DELAYS,OR JUST DONT MAKE FALSE RELEASE DATES 

IM LOOKING FORWARD TO STARTING AN ABERATION SERVER WITH MY FREINDS

sorry needed to vent my anger:Rex:

They delayed it because it either isnt finished or has gamebreaking bugs and I'd rather have a finished product instead of an unfinished product.
