The complete version of Ark: Survival Evolved has gone gold, Studio Wildcard has announced, but the process took longer than expected. As a result of the miscalculation, all versions will face a delayed release. It will now launch on August 29th, three weeks later than originally anticipated. Bah humbug!
The studio shared the disappointing news on their dedicated website, releasing a public statement explaining the predicament that they have now found themselves in. It reads:
We’re deeply apologetic for those who were negatively affected by the delay; it sucks, it wasn’t what we had wanted, nor planned but where we currently stand. We wanted to address this sooner but did not want to make any statements until we were completely sure of what was going to happen.
It has also had a knock on effect in regards to the upcoming free DLC, Ragnarok, which will now become available alongside the game on the 29th. Bah Humbug, again!
At the moment three editions of the game will be available at retail: the vanilla base game, the Explorer’s Edition featuring three expansions equating to 900 hours of additional gameplay, and the Limited Collector’s Edition with journal, map and necklace. Current Amazon UK prices stand at £44.99, £74.99 and £154.99 respectively.
