It’s no secret that ARK: Survival Evolved is one of the most popular early access titles of 2015. What is somewhat surprising is that ever since coming out on Xbox One earlier this month the title has already outstripped its PC counterpart in popularity.
Xbox Wire reports that ARK had racked up over a million downloads in its first week (including both the free preview and paid versions). Even better, the game is thriving in an environment without direct competition: “As the only true large-scale multiplayer survival game available on console, perhaps it comes as no surprise that ARK’s daily Xbox One player count is already bigger than on PC.”
Right now ARK sees around 50,000 daily players on the PC, so the Xbox One is north of that figure.
