UPDATE for ARK:Survival Evolved Console Servers!

So many of you have been asking us: what is the word for ARK console servers?! Here's the current status:

Originally, the plan was to release ARK console servers today, but some things have changed and this is no longer the game plan. ARK: Survival Evolved is set to release officially on August 29th, 2017, but the console servers should be available sooner than that.

According to Community Crunch 98, console servers would arrive sometime in the middle of August - so before the official release and the console release of the Ragnarok map:

We will be releasing a major version update in the middle of the month which will significantly assist with DDoS mitigation, resolve the exploit which has allowed players to dupe, and of course not to be forgotten, but allow players to rent PC-dedicated Console Servers!

However, some more news has came from Studio Wildcard regarding this topic in the most recent Community Crunch 99, which introduces the otter:

We are still planning on our mid-month update which will resolve the current loading-crash on Console Player Dedicated Servers, introduce our DDoS Mitigation for all Official Servers, address the duping exploit and allow players to rent PC-Dedicated Console Servers.

PC-Dedicated Console servers will initially be rolling out on PlayStation 4 for the time being. We will be technically set up to launch them on both of our console platforms from a development point of view but are currently running into some business & pipeline questions with Microsoft which we hope to resolve in the coming weeks.

The short story: PS4 servers are on track to be released on time mid-month, but the certification process for Microsoft(Xbox One) is taking a bit longer and those servers will be available shortly afterward. The development perspective of the system is finished, it needs to be verified by the other networks before it can go live.

@czecharkserver- Logicservers and multiplaygameservers but just checked them and the have removed to date just says coming soon but www.gtxgaming.co.uk still say the 15th
That's only because WC said mid September. Usually when they are dodgey about a topic like they are with this one it's because they're going to delay it again. Be warned lol

A few websites have the 15th of September down as Xbox servers release date. So roughly around there i would say.
There is no recent prediction. No one from Nitrado or WC can/will answer anyone about when Xbox will get rentable servers. So find a better game to play

Any updates on the XBox servers would be great. I know your very busy with the PS4 rollout, but really excited to have you host a server, been waiting for hosted servers for a year. Good luck with your rollout and hope to see an update on the XBox Soon. (fyi ps4 sucks, heh).
