Friday morning, we reported that ARK: Survival Evolved would be the first game available running in DX12 and that it was to be available later that day. Unfortunately, due to what developer Studio Wildcard is calling a driver issue, the studio was forced to delay the update until sometime next week.
Studio Wildcard stated that the delay stems from an issue that it will need AMD and Nvidia's assistance to address. The studio has already reached out to both companies and hopes to have the issue resolved within the week.
“Sadly, we're gonna have to delay its release until some day next week in order to be satisfied with it. It's disappointing to us too and we're sorry for the delay, really thought we'd have it nailed today but we wouldn't want to release ARK DX12 without the care it still needs at this point. Hang in there, and when it's ready for public consumption, it should be worth the wait!"
This is especially unfortunate, as this weekend the game is available for free on Steam, and undoubtedly many gamers were hoping to try out the first DirectX 12 game without having to buy the title.

Tried it out. Ate berries, defecated, ate that too, made some pants, and killed a few dinosaurs. rawr!
Dinosaurs. They made a game based off what they loved about the Jurassic movies and made it a open world. Its a niche market. Some people love open world games others prefer the linear experience.
