Ark: Survival Evolved is one of the most popular survival games today, with over 16 million sales and 10 million mobile installs. All eyes are on Studio Wildcard and the upcoming Ark 2. Here is everything you need to know about Ark 2.
Ark 2 was one of the most highly anticipated games in 2023, but it won’t be released this year. It was announced in September that it would now be pushed back to 2024 with no concrete date. Expect it to be released in the second half of 2024.
When Ark 2 was first announced, it was revealed that the game would see console launch exclusivity on the Xbox Series X alongside a PC release. It is possible that the game could come to other platforms at a later date
Ark: Survival Evolved found huge success on the PS4, so it would be unusual if Studio Wildcard bypassed the PS5 completely. The partnership with Xbox is only for console launch exclusivity, so Ark 2 could come to PS5 after a set amount of time and even Nintendo’s next console
Ark 2 was first announced back in 2020 and since then information has been rather scarce.
Ark: Survival Evolved doesn’t have a powerful story, something that is common with survival games. So if you’ve yet to play Ark: Survival Evolved, you could skip it and just wait for Ark 2 to be released and you will have no problem jumping straight into it.
The Ark 2 story will continue from the Genesis: Part 2 DLC for Ark: Survival Evolved which was released in 2021. After the Genesis Ship is destroyed and crashes into a planet, one of the Santiago clones awakens from stasis and heads toward a planet that will likely be the location of the game.
Vin Diesel is the executive producer of both Ark 2 and Ark: The Animated Series. The Fast and the Furious star is a huge fan of the series, with him claiming to have logged over 1,000 hours in Ark: Survival Evolved over the years.
As part of the partnership between Microsoft and Studio Wildcard, it was announced that Ark 2 would launch on Xbox Game Pass for both PC and console. If the game comes to PS5 it could appear on PS Plus at some point.
Game mods are very popular these days and can help breathe new life into a game for many years to come. Ark 2 will support mods across all platforms.
