Ark: Survival Evolved ended his two-year early access to August 2017, but dev, Studio Wildcard, are already looking ahead: According to co-creative director of the company, Jesse Rapczak, Ark "needs" a sequel, perhaps within the next year or two.
The upcoming expansion this month, entitled Aberration, has the theme of a malfunctioning Ark, whose radioactive loss has generated mutations in the creatures inhabiting the subsoil. In an interview with DualShockers, which you can read in full here , Rapczak was asked how he sees the future of Ark beyond the release of Aberration. Rapczak replied confirming that there is already another expansion in pre-production, the launch of which would be scheduled for next year.
Rapczak has moved further: Although Wildcard is not currently working on a sequel, it is your opinion that the success of the title justifies the investment on a new chapter, and that the devs will have to reason and face the discussion when the time will come. Meanwhile, more information about Aberration is available su Steam.
