Regardless of your views on the system, some titles have found relative success thanks to the model. One of these titles is one of the fresher faces on the block, ARK: Survival Evolved.

This week ARK went on sale to promote the new its latest update and the inclusion of the quetzalcoatlus. This sale has obviously been long-awaited as developers Studio Wildcard have announced that their indie early access title has passed 2 million sales since it launched in June.
This is a remarkable sales total, even if Square Enix would still deem it a commercial failure. The indie Early Access title has seen an incredible surge in popularity since release, which comes as no surprise since you get to ride dinosaurs.
It’s quite impressive to see this title reach such a large sales milestone, but with it’s frequent updates to the survival and crafting sandbox and the addition of new creatures each week it’s easy to see how it has become so popular. Along with the core survival game, there is also a competitive multiplayer aspect that hosts competitions with cash prizes.
With 40,00+ daily players this title has to be doing something right, so congratulations to the developers of ARK: Survival Evolved and I can safely say we can look forward to what you have in store for us in the future.
