Ark: Survival Evolved delayed on the verge of release

What do you call a dinosaur with one eye?

Dino-hunters will have a little longer to sharpen their spears and, uh, assault rifles as epic survival game Ark has been pushed back from its original retail release date of August 8.

In a statement from developers Wildcard, an apology was given for the last-minute delay. "It sucks," says the plain-speaking release. "It wasn't what we had wanted, nor planned but where we currently stand. We wanted to address this sooner but did not want to make any statements until we were completely sure of what was going to happen."

Between now and launch, Wildcard are getting to work on a plethora of game elements including PC optimisations, bug-fixes and tighter online security, as well as addressing the difficulty balance for the game's bosses, which have been causing problem's for the early access community.

Ark: Survival Evolved's deadly and expansive world should be set to explore upon its new launch date, August 29 for PS4, Xbox One, Mac and PC.
