Studio Wildcard last week confirmed that they were targeting “a Major Update on Xbox and PS4 for Jan 16th,” containing the latest game content.

However, several issues appear to have slowed down the process that will now see those ARK Survival Evolved PS4 and Xbox One updates roll out today.

“Ok then, ARK Xbox patch has passed certification. PS4 patch is still in certification. Should we release Xbox patch now, or wait ’till PS4?” Co-Founder of Studio Wildcard, Jeremy Stieglitz wrote on Twitter.

He then followed up his message later with the following: “Sorry all, the ARK Xbox update is gonna be delayed tomorrow as the MS offices are closed today.”

It appears the new ETA for the updates is January 17, although it’s fair to say that there could still be more delays before the day is out.

ARK Survival on Xbox One looks set to be updated at around 8pm UK time, it’s unclear if fans on PS4 consoles can expect the same kind of scheduling.
