With Studio Wildcard working to finish ARK: Survival Evolved ahead of its full release on August 8, the developer has announced that the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One release of the Ragnarok content has been delayed again. A new release date will be announced on Wednesday, July 19:

I hate to be the bearer of bad news and especially when it’s as disappointing as this, but Ragnarok will not be releasing on the 19th of July. I know a lot of you guys have been waiting a long time for it and we’re incredibly sorry. We tried very hard to meet the deadline, but as of where we stand now with the focus over the past 2 weeks of preparing for “certification”, we know we’re not able to. It’s frustrating, and we know we’ve already missed 2 ETAs for the map but afraid it’s looking like it will still be a while out. I will be posting an announcement on Wednesday, sharing the new release date we have planned, as well as a full “state of the game” overview that will go into some detail about our plans for the next month. That’ll happen once we’ve wrapped up our submission (which is essentially consuming Tuesday), and can sit down together to have a chat.

Ragnarok will be included in the v511 update, which also includes the Griffin.

There is some good news today, as Studio Wildcard has confirmed that ARK PS4 update v510 (previously scheduled for July 12) is “definitely” coming out this week, likely between Wednesday and Friday.

“It’s been a long wait, and this is going to be a very big patch, but there will be a lot of improvements, especially to dashboarding as our new memory-management system comes in place,” they added.

Studio Wildcard also plans on resolving DDoS issues and focusing on server stability to “get rid of those nasty dupers.”

If there’s any further delays to the ARK updates, we’ll let you know.
