The dinosaur-riding survival game Ark: Survival Evolved is chugging along nicely, with about 40,000 people playing it at this moment (a daily peak of 56,000, according to Steam Charts) and a big new expansion called Aberration set to come out later this month. But nothing is forever, and creative director Jesse Rapczak told DualShockers recently that in the relatively near future, Studio Wildcard is going to start looking ahead to a sequel.
The developers aren’t actually working on a followup yet, to be clear: Rapczak said Studio Wildcard has „a bunch of great ideas“ for Ark, and it’s currently in pre-production on a new expansion that’s expect to be out sometime in 2018. But beyond that, it’s harder to say.
„I think, you know, as we get down the line, over the next year or two, Ark needs to have a sequel at some point,“ Rapczak said. „It’s definitely gonna be on our minds about when it’s the right time to something like that.“
It will be interesting to see how that…
