Microsoft confirmed today that ARK II is launching as a console exclusive on Xbox Series X and S.
Last week, ARK II was announced at The Game Awards. It is coming in 2022 alongside the new ARK: The Animated Series. Both the animation and the video game feature the actor Vin Diesel, who is joining the Studio Wildcard production team.
“The Ark franchise has a long-storied history with the Xbox community,” writes Tao Sila for Microsoft. “Ark: Survival Evolved was a console launch exclusive in the Xbox Game Preview program in December 2015, gaining valuable feedback from Xbox One players along the way before launching in August 2017.”
“When Xbox One X launched in November 2017, it was one of the first Xbox One X Enhanced titles. Then in January 2019, Xbox Game Pass members joined the Ark community then gained access to the Scorched Earth, Aberration, and Extinction DLC. Ark: Survival Evolved is also one of the first titles to be optimized for Xbox Series X|S,” Sila adds.
