Today Ark: Survival Ascended developer Studio Wildcard shared an update about the timeline for the launch of the game on PS5 and Xbox Series X|S.

In a post made on X (formerly Twitter) the folks at Studio Wildcard mention that there have been issues with the certification process on Xbox and they're working on resubmitting a new build. As a result, they're targeting early next week for the launch on Microsoft's console.

As for PlayStation, things are still on track for a release at the end of November and more information will be shared when a release date is finalized.

Ark: Survival Ascended console launch update: 

Xbox: unfortunately, the certification process has yielded some unexpected issues, so we are working with Microsoft to resubmit the build as soon as possible. We're currently targeting Ark: survival ascended to launch early next week, and we hope to share a more precise update by the end of the week. We apologize for the added delay; we're working hard to get it out the door. 

PlayStation: we are directly iterating with our partners and Sony on the ASA release and are still on track for launch at the end of this month. We'll update you as we make more meaningful progress and have a precise launch window to share. 

We know you've been looking forward to ASA, and we're sorry to keep our console survivors waiting!

If you're unfamiliar with Ark: Survival Ascended, it's a remaster of the popular Ark: Survival Evolved, released a few weeks ago on PC and coming soon for PS5 and Xbox Series X|S.

Announced back in March, it's the next step for the franchise before the developers manage to release the sequel, Ark 2, which is currently slated for the end of 2024 after having been announced all the way back in 2020.
