For those without any sort of time keeping device - today is 1/21.  The currently published release date is 1/31.  Keep saying it's late or there is no release date... 

Was there even an official announcement for a date?  I have no idea a I just started playing again and wasn't paying attention.  That information doesn't look like an official announcement, especially given the wording there.  Reads like someone trying to estimate the date on their own based on speculation.

Ah, I do see that the official store sources for where to buy it state January 2020.
Go to the stores linked here:  https://playark.com/genesis/

Seems that is likely not helping with the customers who bought this, given WCs past record I doubt they're going to hit January 2020 otherwise the hype train would be in full swing by now. 

Probably would be a good idea to update those stores with the right information to something more realistic.

This is not release date.  What you posted above is common practice for video games without release dates.  If a game dev says they are releasing a new game in 2021 and you go to preorder it, the release date will say Dec 31 2021 because there is no official release date . They just pick the last possible day of the year, or in this case month, and call it a release date. That way they cover every possible day.  It is not official, it does not come from the developers, it is an estimate using the given information at hand.

Ora mi sembra che stiate esagerando, dovete pensare a rispettare gli utenti, pagando il pre-ordine di un dlc, ci si aspetta di poter almeno seguire gli sviluppi su di esso, se dovrete ritardarlo non e un problema sul serio, voldire che uscirà bene, ma dovete comunicarcelo, siamo alla fine del mese ( che gia e un ritardo ) insomma ora state iniziando a sbagliare tanto, in questi giorni vi prego di darci informazioni in merito al dlc genesis, altrimenti inizieranno le richieste di rimborso, velo posso assicurare, e così che si perdono utenti, non fate morire il gioco per così poco

Okay i am done being civil and professional, these community crunches are teases. At the point the rather you tell us nothing. You are holding back for what reason, disappointment that you are wrong. News flash! People are already salty about this no release date thing. And pushing back a date you set back is acc preferred than this no release date bs! I acc like having something to look forward too even if it's pushed back, rather this no release date.

Everyone has pretty much figured out the dlc is going to be delayed..why not go ahead and announce it will be delayed? Sure there will be people still complaining but at least it won't be complaints about the radio silence we are currently receiving on a PAID dlc. If it were a free map like Rag or Val, personally I wouldn't care about the silence. But when you pay for something the purchaser should at least be kept in the loop about delays in receiving what they paid for. I understand WC is not some huge team of people, and having played nearly every day since it hit ps4 I have come to expect the delays not only on updates but dlc as well.  But not keeping people in the loop, delays and all, for something they paid for is how you lose business and stifle growth of a new customer base. 

That said, not gonna lie, excited for the Vday event and the prospect of new chibis..hoping griffins are one of the new chibis😍. If fishing is involved this may be the first time since preLegacy I've had reason to break out and actually use a fishing pole.

Could you add the gacha clause back into the Game? I know Christmas is over but Private Server would Like to let it run longer. Also Orbital drops and corrupt Dinos are'nt spawnable on Ragnarok anymore.. why?? Just give us the freedom to do our events.. privat servers are the ones who keep your game alive!

-ActiveEvent= WinterWonderland

add that as a launch argument for your server to keep the xmas event

Truth be told, they pushed again genesis i bet. they are being quiet cause it is probably full of bugs and they need another month to fix them.  At least if they were honest about it. last week of January and they haven't said much since the delay on December...

Is like they like shooting themselves in the foot lol

Um... Any word on when Genesis will be coming out? Is it going to come out on the 28th when the legacy servers get wiped? Anxious to see what amazing surprises are waiting and the suspense is killing me lol

We're one week and a half weeks away from the end of January, don't get your hopes up, expect the worse. However I do kind of suspect they will release on 28th so let's expect the worse but hope the best I guess!

<-- Still butthurt that the event decorations don't STAY or can't be picked up after the event at the very least.  Nothing makes me more willing to play a game like this then having the ability to decorate, christmas lights around the inside of the base was awesome even if the lights didn't glow or emit well enough, my wife and I both believe that sometimes its better to keep a little sprinkle of Christmas up all year round to remind us of happier times in our lives.

Once upon a time, waiting for the Community Crunch was exciting. 

So much going on. Fixes, changes, things being added and discussed. But now, it is rather sad. 

For a few weeks items with the most votes in the suggestion section were discussed... then that stopped. 

For a few weeks we received mod competition news and snippets... then the competition came to a close. 

For a few weeks we were given sneak peeks into the next DLC... then that too faded away. 

For a few weeks we were given random notes about QOL changes and updates.... that too is now silent.

For a time there were things to read about and see, now all we are getting is a slightly revamped holiday update, which based on how well the last few worked, does not inspire much confidence. In fact, there is a chance the cluster I manage will be voting to turn the event off after the trouble with the last few. 

The communication is nice, far more so than Atlas where there is nothing, however it is not what it used to be. 

I understand that it may be busy and that hard defined dates and defined changes are difficult to release - but at this point a possibility or discussion is better than what we are given. 

That said, thank you for what we have been given, and please, rethink the Community Crunch's of the future and give us a bit more.

Is it just me or is the comment section the same, everytime Cedric or another WildCard staff post something?

Big part of the community: *complains

Staff member: *tries to make things better by announcing more events, content and QoL changes

Big part of the community: *still complains

Damned if you do, damned if dont.

Thats the mentality of the current gen players. Sad.

I really feel bad for WC. I am worried about those guys. They published a release date for their next DLC. They even received payment from a large group of people for said DLC. Then they postponed it a month now possibly 2. The back lash will be great if it doesn't drop before the last day of January. With them already advertising an event in February and silence on the project they sold. Well it doesn't look good for ole wildcard. Either they are keeping it a great secret or they have failed to deliver what they sold. Oh the refunds that are now to late to apply for. Yikes. I have been with Ark since early access, and sadly this happens every DLC. 

There is nothing special about delays. They happen in the industry constantly. Just need to get used to it. Preordering a game with release date does not any way bind them to release it then nor prevent from delaying. If it would release on 28th, there would be ppl still moaning.

That's like amazon saying dec 31 2020 it's a holder date that some site has put up because it's the last day of the month that has been stated to be the release date unless you can find a ac source it's not offical

Man. ARK is really showing its true colors as wildcard continue to hide and ignore the "Genesis problem" and haven't mentioned a damn thing in about 2 months. No more item teasers or previews. Words on the release date. Or anything.

Would you rather a rushed expansion fill with the many bugs you keep complaining about? I for one am happy with the delay and even wouldn’t be upset at it being delayed further and I guess they are showing there true colors by just means more time and care into genesis. However it is fair to ask for news and updates and about the release date I believe Cedric said they won’t be giving one as to not disappoint by missing the release date.

How about, with this Valentine's day event, WildCard, show some "Love" to the Velonasaur and the Managarmr and fix what ya'll broke by nerfing them into the ground. Give us back like half of the power of the Velo's thrash/shake attack and completely get rid of the ridiculous limitations you've placed on the Mana's movement. Or, if you still want to kill the fun of these two awesome dinos for those that somehow still play official, then at the very Least put something in the INI settings so that those of us that play unofficial/private servers have the Option to have these dinos perform the way we want them to. I think that at least is entirely reasonable.
