The excitement surrounding Ark 2 had steadily been building ever since the game was initially revealed back at the 2020 Game Awards. Featuring none other than Fast & Furious star Vin Diesel in the leading role, the opening showcase gave viewers a look at the features and creatures that could be expected in the sequel.

Unfortunately, the series’ loyal fan base has been let down after the developers revealed that the game’s launch would be heavily delayed. Now that it’s been pushed back, players can’t help but wonder when they can expect the long-awaited sequel.

Here’s what we know so far about the Ark 2 release date.

Ark 2 predicted release date

Sadly, the Ark 2 release date has been pushed back to the end of 2024. Game developer Studio Wildcard revealed that the decision to delay the game was made in order to provide the best product that they could to players through the study and use of Unreal Engine 5.

Many had been looking forward to the sequel being released in 2023 since this was the window that was announced during the Xbox and Bethesda Games Showcase of 2022.

Similar to the first game, it’ll also go through an early access period, which is what the new 2024 release date is most likely referring to. Additionally, since Xbox are helping to publish the game, it’ll be an Xbox Series exclusive on console, at least. However, this partnership also means that it’ll be available on launch at no extra cost to Game Pass subscribers, which is a great bonus for those on the service.

As well as the voice and likeness of the actor who plays Groot in Guardians of the Galaxy, Ark 2 also promises a new epic story, cross platform modding between the PC and Xbox versions and a whole new alien environment to explore.

On top of that, the sequel promises “advanced character traversal mechanics” including mantling, parkour, and swinging. With this in mind, it’s shaping up to be a much more advanced game than its predecessor.

Hopefully, we’ll get to hear more about the game soon, but with its release now set for 2024, the developers may not provide anything new in the current year.
