Studio Wildcard this week has released two world premiere trailers at Game Awards 2020, announcing ARK II, a sequel to ARK: Survival Evolved and a new original TV series based on the franchise dubbed ARK: The Animated Series. The biggest surprises from the reveal Vin Diesel, will join the Studio Wildcard production acting as an executive producer of ARK II and staring as Santiago.
“I’m having a lot of fun playing ARK and also really excited to join the Studio Wildcard team to develop the story both in game and in the new animated series,” said Diesel.
“An immensely talented actor and producer, Vin is also an accomplished gamer who has played 1000’s of hours of ARK: Survival Evolved,” said Doug Kennedy, CEO of Studio Wildcard. “He understands the game intimately and is providing direct feedback to the development process. With last night’s reveal of the ARK sequel and animated TV series, Vin will be involved with each as we look to expand the ARK franchise even further, now and into the future.”
ARK II thrusts players into a brutal new world of primitive survival against both beast and man, facing down the ever-present threats of hyper-realistic intelligent dinosaurs, aggressive alien fauna, and the exotic environments of an unearthly planet. Survivors will continue ARK‘s dramatic eons-spanning story of humankind’s evolution, in this next-generation sandbox survival experience!
ARK II and ARK: The Animated Series are both coming in 2022.
