An Important Message from Studio Wildcard Co-Founders Jesse and Jeremy The upcoming Genesis expansion adds a lot of innovative and fun new features to ARK and is our most complex expansion pack to date, with a completely new mission system that dramatically changes the way you can play ARK. As a team we have decided that an extra month of polish and balancing is needed to deliver an awesome experience to everyone on launch day, so our anticipated simultaneous release for all platforms will be late January 2020. Meanwhile, we will continue to create fun new events and updates for ARK, including today as we launch Fear Evolved 3, and with the extra time we plan to add mouse-and-keyboard support on consoles this year as well as working on some surprises for the entire community at our biggest-ever Winter Wonderland event in December!

As always, we will continue to implement changes to address any methods we have been able to reproduce. Please continue to report any known methods via the ticket system. Enforcement With the increase of reports, the enforcement team has been tasked with a larger number of tickets. This backlog of requests prevented our enforcement team from acting quickly to incidents that were being reported. We've made a considerable dent in the backlog and hope to improve our response time to incidents that are reported.
