Ark: Survival Ascended’s PS5 release has been delayed
Ark: Survival Ascended, the remake of Ark: Survival Evolved, has been delayed for the PlayStation 5, with its developer, Studio Wildcard, now targeting a release by the end of November.
In a new blog post, Studio Wildcard confirms that the Xbox version of the game will still be released on November 14, complete with cross-platform play. The PS5 version of the game, on the other hand, has yet to receive an official release date, with the developer stating that it is still "finalizing" it with Sony and will be updated soon.
The blog post also reveals some information about the game's console release, stating that Xbox and PC crossplay will be available from day one, with servers for its PvE, PvP, and Small Tribes modes available, as well as console-specific servers for those who prefer not to play with other platforms. The PlayStation version will include cross-platform play with both Xbox and PC users, and all servers will offer "higher boosted rates" for gathering and XP gain for all players until mid-December.
Survival Ascended is an Unreal Engine 5 remake of 2017's Survival Evolved with brand-new visuals. The game was released last month on Steam to mixed reviews due to several technical issues such as crashes, stuttering, and overall low frame rates on powerful hardware. As Studio Wildcard prepares for the delayed Ark 2 release in late 2024, Survival Ascended will also receive several expansions.
