It’s a quiet week this week in the world of Xbox One. Not a single retail release in sight and only a handful of digital releases marked for this week.
Ark: Survival Evolved was due for release this week, but has recently been pushed back towards the end of August in order to make some last-minute improvements to the game and it’s upcoming DLC.
