ARK Survival Evolved Dev: “Sony Players Will Benefit Greatly From Xbox Early Access””
Studio Wildcard wishes Sony also had an early access program.
Studio Wildcard’s ARK: Survival Evolved is currently going great on the Xbox One since arriving through the console’s Game Preview Program (and facing numerous issues like frame rate troubles). It’s also heading to the PlayStation 4 but the developer wished that Sony’s console also offered some kind of early access.
Creative director Jesse Rapczak told GameSpot that, “We’re pretty excited about PS4. We wish Sony had an early access program, and a lot of people have been asking us for it.
“There are a few exceptions that we’re not quite sure why they made an exception for one game or the other, but 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.
“It feels weird to say this, but fortunately the Sony players will benefit greatly from the Xbox early access. Even though they’re different platforms, they’re both consoles. Console gamers have lots of similarity; it doesn’t matter what platform you’re playing on. That being said, all of the feedback we’re getting from Xbox is really great for whatever console we ever launch Ark on.”
ARK: Survival Evolved will be getting a full commercial release on current gen platforms in June.
