Ark 2 is still a little while away, but it's hard to deny it's one of the most exciting upcoming releases of 2023. Designed for next-gen, the new game will be quite the spectacle to behold, and likely set the standard for the survival genre for years to come.
We already know the game is coming to Xbox, and there are rumours about PS5, but will it be available for PC players? Here's everything you need to know, as well as whether your PC will be able to run it.

Is Ark 2 coming to PC?
The new installment was announced as a console exclusive for Xbox at launch a little while back, but what does that actually mean? PS5 players will have to wait to play the game, but can PC players get in on the action any earlier?
Great news for fans is that yes, Ark 2 is coming to PC, and it will launch at the same time as on Xbox. Since both Xbox and PC are or can be hosted by Microsoft, it makes sense that the deal with Studio Wildcard extends to PC players as well.
Since the game is designed for Xbox Series X and S and isn't expected to come to Xbox One, the PC requirements are a little more than some. If you're only looking to run the game though, and don't mind turning down some graphics settings, you'll have no issues.
PC Minimum Requirements
If you're just looking to run Ark 2, and don't mid not having the best graphics available, you should have an easy ride. Here are all the minimum system requirements to run it:
- CPU: Intel Core i5-7600/AMD Ryzen 5 1600 or better
- RAM: 8 GB
