Fans of "ARK: Survival Evolved" may roll their eyes a bit because of the delayed release, but this would not be the first time that Studio Wildcard has ran into some issues regarding the launching of the game out of Early Access.
As a result, both Ark and the DLC will release on 29 August rather than 8 August as originally planned.
"This extended time will allow further development of the map and you guys can expect a huge update, even bigger than we initially thought". The overground world is now expected to be "approximately one quarter" larger than planned. The company would have announced the news sooner, but wanted to be sure about how things would play out before making it official.
In a statement from developers Wildcard, an apology was given for the last-minute delay. We will also be adding their custom creatures to our main game, which will allow players to transfer them via the CrossARK system, so you'll be able to bring over your Ice Wyverns to The Island, The Center, and Scorched Earth!More news: Twins trade Kintzler to Nationals at deadline

"Ark: Survival Evolved" will launch on August 29 for PS4 and Xbox One consoles, and for PCs. A major version update that will "significantly assist with DDoS mitigation, resolve the exploit which has allowed players to dupe, and. allow players to rent PC-dedicated Console Servers" is also slated for the middle of August.
Studio Wildcard will put a lot of focus on the PC version of the game now the console version is gold - most notably the games' performance.
Even with the Gold Master complete, however, the studio says it has a busy few weeks ahead. While this is a common reason delay for smaller independent games, it's not often a more high-profile release like ARK: Survival Evolved stumbles through such procedures.
Before long, however, ARK: Survival Evolved will be expanding further with another release.
