Speaking to GamesIndustry.biz, Jesse Rapczak, Co-Founder and Co-Creative Director at Studio Wildcard, revealed that they haven’t ruled out the Switch.
“Switch is a little challenging because it is a totally different platform, so we’re throwing some ideas around, just seeing if it makes sense right now,” he explains.
“We don’t have any concrete plans yet, but we’re very close to Nintendo up here in Seattle and we all love the Switch for portability gaming and stuff like that.
“The mobility of the Switch platform might be appealing to those players, because they can just kinda carry it with them.
“So we do have a lot of hurdles there, especially with memory. But I will say, for sure, we’re not ignoring the Switch. I think it’s definitely proven to be a platform that is a little bit better this time around for third-party developers.
While it all sounds very positive, the chance of the full game being ported over in its current state seems unlikely.
Barring the already-known limitations of the Switch hardware, ARK Survival Evolved is also known to be a large game that needs a lot of storage space.
So it any full-blooded is announced, you can expect that a memory card will be required to play it.
Other big third-party projects already announced for the Nintendo Switch, include Wolfenstein II: The New Colossus, Project Octopath Traveler and The Elder Scrolls V: Skryim.
Fans are also hoping that Rockstar could follow up their recent release of LA Noire with a brand new port announcement for one of their biggest games ever, GTA 5.
