If you play Studio Wildcard’s Ark on the Playstation 4 you are already aware that the last few patches and content offerings have not been made available to us yet. Constant delays and game breaking bugs have caused the PS4 version of Ark to be unplayable at times.
Today again brings no change as this desperately needed patch has been delayed AGAIN.
We won’t be getting a console update out for either Xbox or PS4 on the 12th. Still have some issues to work out. Sorry guys!

This cycle is very, very frustrating to PS4 players especially, Xbox has recently had some bug fixing and feature adding patches that have yet to hit the PS4 version.
This specific patch has been delayed for the Playstation 4 since June 24th, a date given to us publicly at E3.
Xbox +PS4 update coming Monday too! Had it ready today, but took extra day 2 get thru console patch QA, sadly (& they close for weekend) 😛

The patch that was supposed to be out the following Monday after the above tweet never came, and was again met with more and more delays. Patches are not the only thing that keeps getting delayed, The free Ark Expansion Ragnarok has also been delayed twice for consoles, with Wildcard saying it would be released on the 10th of July
Console users, Ragnarok will not be releasing on Xbox or PS4 on July 4th. Currently we are aiming for next week, the week of July 10th.

Again it was delayed until the 10th, but guess what? It got delayed AGAIN.
Xbox crash hotfix today. PC update today (or tmrw). The next PS4 update is ETA July 12th & Ragnarok on console is ETA July 19th.

Something tells me that console players will not get Ragnarok as promised again on July 19th, and the the upcoming “release date” of August 8th 2017 will not be met either.
I would love for Wildcard to prove me wrong, but right now Ark is nothing but bugs and broken promises.
