There are no more setbacks for Ark: Survival Ascended on Xbox Series X|S. The dinosaur game will finally release on Microsoft consoles at 9 a.m. PT / 12 p.m. ET today, November 21, with official servers going live “within hours of launch,” according to Studio Wildcard.
The developer revealed the arrival time on Xbox Series X|S on Twitter/X, as well as a delay for the PS5 edition of the remake. “We are still working closely with Sony on PlayStation 5 certification for Ark: Survival Ascended,” Studio Wildcard said. “While we were aiming for a late November launch, we encountered issues today that will require additional time.”
As such, the game will aim to be released on PS5 at the beginning of December. Ark: Survival Ascended also experienced a last-minute delay on Xbox last week because it was “under certification.” This was after there were “critical issues” with the remake on consoles in October, pushing back the release date. However, Ark: Survival Ascended surprisingly launched on PC in October, priced at $40.50 on Steam Early Access.
The remake is not the only big project in preparation at Studio Wildcard. The developer plans to release Ark 2 in 2024, starring Fast X star Vin Diesel. Like Ark: Survival Ascended, the sequel will also use Unreal Engine 5.
