ARK has already sold 2 million early-access copies

How do you sell 2 million copies before you officially launch your game? Be a studio with a survival MMO on Steam. And, you know, not abandon your game. That part is not as easy as it sounds.

Studio Wildcard issued a press release today to celebrate ARK: Survival Evolved’s 2 million copies sold since its early-access launch last June, emphasizing its weekly dino additions, new biomes, and new competitive gameplay elements. ARK is slated to officially release on Steam and console — Xbox One and PlayStation 4 (“with Project Morpheus support”) — next summer.

In a Reddit AMA this morning, Co-Founder and Co-Creative Director Jesse Rapczak answered player questions, explaining that the dinosaur AI update is still on the priority list, that DX12 support isn’t coming in the near future, that a physical art book is likely, and that the devs do sleep sometimes.

It’s a cool game and I’ve met some friendly players who were very happy to help out new players.

But the game runs like absolute garbage. I’ve played all types of PC games on my machine and no other game has taxed my system like Ark does and my PC is pretty good.

When friends ask me how it is and if they should get it I tell them no way and to wait until it actually is playable.

Armsbend agemyth Looks to be more of an Ice Age thing, but that has a similar appeal.

Oskiee TheChiefTurtle this game has more content than most released game. There is no need to wait for release, but it will hurt your pc if it’s not relatively good. Do yourself a favor and just get it now.

dLinden No, it shouldnt lol. That’s not how game development works. Optimization is one of the last things done.

Cujo H I would agree, but I would go a step further and make it more a weird west game than a traditional wild west one.  I love supernatural additions to a genre.
