Fans of dinosaurs, and particularly fans of hunting dinosaurs, were hotly anticipating Ark: Survival Evolved’s official release on August 8th. Unfortunately, developer Studio Wildcard announced a small delay, pushing the game three weeks to August 29th.
“It sucks,” reads the announcement. “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.” Studio Wildcard is hoping to use the extra time to iron out issues and optimize the game before release.
Ark has been incredibly popular on Steam and Xbox One, announcing 5.5 million sales by August 2016. The full release, Survival Evolved, will release on PC, Mac, Xbox One, and PS4.
