Ark: Survival Ascended launches on Xbox, but its PlayStation port is delayed again
After a number of delays, Ark fans can finally get their hands on the Xbox version of Survival Ascended, but PlayStation players will have to wait a little longer due to certification issues.
Studio Wildcard announced via X that the Xbox version of Ark: Survival Ascended will finally be released later today after running into difficulties during Microsoft's certification process, resulting in not one but two delays in the span of a week. There are still a few hours until the launch at the time of writing, but it doesn't appear likely that the developer will cancel its plans now.
PlayStation players, on the other hand, received some bad news regarding their version of the game, with Studio Wildcard stating that issues were discovered during the certification process for Sony's system. The developer is now working with Sony to resolve the issues, but this means that it will have to push back its target release window again from the end of November to early December to include day one crossplay.
Survival Ascended, the Unreal Engine 5 remake of 2017's Survival Evolved, was released on Steam at the end of October to mixed reviews. Many praised the game's massive visual upgrade, but its poor technical performance resulted in a flood of negative reviews, with console players hoping they don't encounter similar issues.
