Well shit. We all knew it was coming, yet somehow optimistic that we would be wrong.…
Studio Wildcard has officially delayed Ark Survival Evolved. Initial release date of August 8th has been delayed until August 29th.
During this week’s Community Crunch, Studio Wildcard delayed Ark and the highly anticipated Free DLC Ark Ragnarok until August 29th.
Studio Wildcard says they have completed the single player mode of Ark and have reached golden master status for retail release. The last few weeks have been focused on them completing this certification process and now they will use this time during the delay to focus on the PC and multiplayer versions of the game, saying they will fix multiple big issues such as

They don’t mention player dedicated servers on that fix list. As of now most of them are completely unplayable. They do say that consoles will be receiving these fixes and optimizations, but would not say how long that we would have to wait after the PC release.
On the Ragnarok side of things, it has also been delayed for the 3rd time, until August 29th. When Ragnarok launches Wildcard says,
On the date of release, the overground of the world will increase by approximately one quarter, which is near-enough a ‘TheIsland-sized’ expansion; the update will feature new biomes, a coastal Wyvern canyon, an epic boss encounter, new engrams, and something secret the Ragnarok team are cooking up!
The Rent-able console servers have been delayed until “mid month”
Yesterday Studio Wildcard released the much delayed Patch for the PS4 version of Ark. This patch made this game unplayable for most people and rendered most player dedicated servers useless, most would crash after just 15 minutes or so.
