Unfortunately, developer Studio Wildcard recently announced that they had to put ARK: Survival of the Fittest’s development on hold, in order to fully focus on bringing ARK: Survival Evolved to the PS4.
The original announcement come back in April, and it was supposed to release tomorrow, but a couple of days ago, Senior Technical and Gameplay Designer Kayd Hendricks updated PlayStation Blog’s post with the following update:
Hey ARK fans, Studio Wildcard is putting the PS4 version of ARK: Survival of the Fittest on hold in order to focus on preparing ARK: Survival Evolved for PS4 release. While this means ARK: Survival of the Fittest won’t be releasing on PS4 in July 2016, we’re working towards an earlier release of ARK: Survival Evolved.
ARK: Survival Evolved still doesn’t have a set release date as to when we will see it on PS4, but since Studio Wildcard has decided to shift all the team’s focus to it, then I guess we might be able to get our hands on it sooner than expected. As for its standalone game, ARK: Survival of the Fittest, I think we will get it a couple of months after.
