Ark console players again are served another delay, Free DLC Ark Ragnarok has been delayed again. Today, via a twitter post linking a post on the official Ark forums, Wildcard has delayed Ragnarok for consoles again.
This time NO ETA or release date was given except saying that on July 19th (The Day We Were Supposed To Get Ragnarok For The 3rd Time) they will post a “State Of The Game” posting to let us know what we can expect.
Ragnarok Delay on Consoles
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.- Jat Wildcard’s Lead Community Manager and Associate Producer
Also addressed was the forever upcoming PS4 patch for Ark,
Where is the PS4 update?
The PS4 update will definitely be coming this week, as we’ll be submitting our console certs this week. We should wrap up Xbox today, and then we’ll be helping out Abstraction as much as we can to bring the PS4 up to spec! 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. It’s difficult to give a precise date for when it’ll drop, as it’ll be based on when we submit and how we wrap it up, but we’re expecting somewhere between Wednesday and Friday. If that changes, we’ll, of course, let you know, but we’ll be doing our best alongside Abstraction to meet it.- Jat Wildcard’s Lead Community Manager and Associate Producer
Looks like console players as a whole will have to keep waiting for the promises to stop being broken. PS4 users specifically still have to wait for a much needed Patch. Wildcard is on a very, very slippery slope and the gamers are the ones who are being punished.
Head over to the Official Ark forums to check out the post in its entirety.
Are you still hanging in there with Ark, hoping it will get better? Or are you like the many, many people who have just quit and moved on to other games that don’t hang you out to dry so much?
