If you blinked during the Game Awards on Twitch, you might have missed the announcement of a new MMO launching next week from the makers of ARK: Survival Evolved. Studio WildCard’s Jeremy Stieglitz and Jesse Rapczak were on hand with a quick trailer and interview to herald the upcoming release of Atlas — a massive pirate-filled world — that hits PCs December 13th and is credited to Grapeshot Games and Instinct Games. And by release, they mean “two years of early access,” apparently, but this is WildCard, so you probably figured that. This first person MMO – an “MMO On the Grandest Scale,” the Steam page boldly declares – will then launch on XboxOne next year in the game preview program.
