Ark: Survival Ascended’s The Center map remaster delayed indefinitely

Ark: Survival Ascended developer Studio Wildcard has announced it’s indefinitely delaying the release of the dinosaur survival remaster’s enhanced The Center expansion, just days before its planned 28th February release.

Ark: Survival Ascended – the controversial full-price Unreal Engine 5 remaster of 2015’s Ark: Survival Evolved – has been plagued with delays since its announcement last year. First, the remaster’s launch was shifted from August to October – a release it eventually managed to hit on PC, albeit with the Xbox Series X/S version getting a last-minute delay to mid-November and the PS5 release arriving later still – while Ascended’s various expansion remasters, originally due to launch alongside the base game, have now slipped a number of times.

In January, Wildcard announced its Scorched Earth expansion remaster, initially delayed to December 2023 and then moved to March 2024, would now be releasing in April, while its Aberration and Ragnarok map remasters – previously delayed to “Q1 2024” – were now on track to arrive in July and September 2024 respectively. Amid all this furious roadmap revision, there was a bright spot in that the enhanced version of Ark’s The Center map would now be coming to Ascended a couple of months earlier than listed in December. The Center’s release was later pinned down to 28th February, but once again it’s all change.
