Studio Wildcard has announced that Ark: Survival Evolved‘s full release has been delayed to holiday 2016 as the developer needs some extra time to wrap things up. The game, which is currently available on Xbox One and PC via Game Preview and Early Access programs, was originally scheduled for a full release in the summer. Studio co-founder, Jesse Rapczak, said in a statement to GameSpot:
Ark’s success has increased our content goals and Early Access players have helped us raise our ambitions with their invaluable feedback. When we first announced, we said 70 dinos, now we’ll have over 100. We never anticipated adding modding, local multiplayer, split screen, or numerous other upcoming features. The game at launch will be far more robust than originally conceived, but it takes a little extra time to wrap it all up.
In the meantime, PlayStation 4 players can enjoy Ark: Survival of the Fittest, a spin-off of Ark: Survival Evolved, starting July 19.
