ARK: Survival Evolved won’t be appearing on PlayStation 4 anytime soon according developer Wildcard. It is already out on PC and Xbox One as an early access game but Wildcard say Sony will not allow the game to land on PlayStation 4 until development has been completed.
As for the PS4 Release of ARK: Survival Evolved, it is currently up to Sony. We’ve been informed that we can’t release the game on this platform until it has been finished. We would like nothing more than to make ARK available on PS4 as soon as possible, as we already have an awesome PS4 version of the game running internally. If you would like to see it sooner, please let Sony know, as it’s unfortunately not our decision.
Whilst that seems to lay the blame at Sony’s door, there have been games such as Paragon that have had early access on PS4, and the console has a version of 7 Days To Die, and game that is still in Early Access on Steam.
The least time the team updated the final completion date for ARK: Survival Evolved on PS4 they indicated the game would be out this ‘holiday’ season.
