ARK 2 is the sequel to ARK: Survival Evolved. It was announced at the Game Awards 2020, and will be a survival sandbox similar to the first game, releasing on PC and next-gen consoles.
ARK 2 takes place after the events of Genesis: Part 2 on an alien planet. All of the “clones” separated from the Genesis Ship have been dropped down afterwards.
Actor Vin Diesel is involved in the production of ARK 2. According to an article on “The Verge”, Diesel will play Santiago in ARK 2.
Ark 2 has been more of a mythical yeti than a well-researched dinosaur fossil since its announcement. We know it’s got a whole bunch of Vin Diesel (in some capacity), and definitely still features dinos. But that’s just about all we know, and it’s been a long wait for more information.
One of the least-expected reveals of The Game Awards 2020, Studio Wildcard debuted Ark 2 with a lengthy cinematic starring Vin Diesel’s character beating up dinos and looking generally ripped, if a little CGI plasticky.
But, wait, isn’t Ark a multiplayer survival game? What’s with these voiced characters and stories? It seems like Studio Wildcard has bigger ambitions for the Ark franchise, including an animated show starring Diesel, Russel Crowe, Elliot Page, Karl Urban, and more.
