Ark 2 release date speculation, trailers, gameplay, and news
Want to know when the Ark 2 release date is? Ever since the Ark 2 announcement at The Game Awards 2020, we’ve been looking forward to learning more about the upcoming dinosaur-themed survival game.
Based on the two cinematic trailers and the additional info from the Studio Wildcard development team, it’s clear that Ark 2 will feature a unique story, enhanced gameplay mechanics, and (of course!) a T-Rex.
From the Ark 2 release date to its platform, souls-like combat, and mod support; here’s everything we know about the Ark sequel.
Ark 2 release date speculation
At this point in time, there is no definitive Ark 2 release date. It was one of the surprise announcements during The Game Awards 2020, and although the Ark sequel was originally set to arrive in 2022,
it has since been pushed back to 2023. This release window was confirmed in the Xbox and Bethesda Games Showcase 2022 cinematic trailer.
At this point, any talk about a specific Ark 2 release date is pure speculation. However, as the Xbox and Bethesda Games Showcase trailer didn’t reveal any gameplay yet, it’s unlikely to be any sooner than late 2023. Like the original Ark game, it’s possible that Ark 2 may come out in early access first.
Ark 2 trailers
So far, we’ve seen two cinematic trailers and both feature Vin Diesel as the hero Santiago.
In the first trailer, Santiago’s little community (including his daughter) is ambushed by massive, orc-like monsters. The situation seems pretty dire, but Santiago is handling it well… Until a T-Rex joins the fight. As both orcs and humans fall victim to the gigantic dinosaur, Santiago manages to grab his daughter and find safety in a nearby cave.
In the second trailer, Santiago’s daughter introduces the world of Arat, where “every day is a fight to survive”. We see a Dodo, a bigger dinosaur, and then… A T-Rex, again. This time though, the T-Rex is tamed by Santiago and his daughter. Looks like their survival game is going pretty well.https:
Why is Vin Diesel in Ark 2?
Let’s have a more detailed look at Vin Diesel’s role, shall we? As the trailers have shown, Vin Diesel stars as the heroic protagonist in Ark 2, but that’s not all.
As an avid gamer and great fan of Ark: Survival Evolved, Studio Wildcard decided to bring Vin on board as an executive producer. More precisely, Vin Diesel joins the production team as the President of Creative Convergence.
While we don’t know the exact scope of Diesel’s involvement, he has mentioned that he’s “excited to join the Studio Wildcard team to develop the story”. It suggests that he’s working on the game’s narrative, and possibly more.
