ARK: Survival Evolved’s cross-platform peak daily headcount is nearing 200K

Well, I can't object to the theory.

Dino survival sandbox ARK: Survival Evolved is pulling in over 100,000 unique users per day, a new interview with Studio Wildcard on Gamespot reveals.

“One thing we do know is that can’t be mostly free players because you can only play the trial for an hour,” says co-founder and creative director Jesse Rapczak. “Considering every day we’re seeing peaks around that, the game has way more concurrent players than the PC game ever did, even at its highest peak of like 85,000 or something like that.”

Rapczak says it was more expensive to develop the game for Xbox, and the game’s Xbox price is higher too, but the game’s popularity on that platform has pushed “peak cross-platform player count lately around the high hundred thousands–you know, 175,000, 180,000, kind of creeping up towards 200,000.”

Rapczak’s team is pumped for a PS4 launch too. “We wish Sony had an early access program,” he explains. “ARK is in the state where at present time unless it’s finished, it’s not coming out on PS4 until they have some other program that allows us to do that. That being said we are really excited about it.”
