    According to a recent rumour, Sony spent money to make Ark: Survival Evolved available as a free monthly game on PlayStation Plus. These free monthly games are accessible to users as long as their subscription is active. In contrast to the library of games accessible to PS Plus Extra and Premium subscribers, players in this situation lose access after the game departs the service.

    In March 2022, Ark: Survival Evolved was a PlayStation Plus title. The other free games that month from Sony were Ghostrunner, Team Sonic Racing, and Ghost of Tsushima: Legends. Grand Theft Auto Online for the PS5 was also available for download starting on March 15, although customers could only use it for three months. It has since been made public that Sony spent millions to include Ark: Survival Evolved in the PS Plus library.

    According to a tweet from Ethan Gach, which was picked up by IGN, Sony spent $3.5 million to make Ark: Survival Evolved available on PlayStation Plus in March 2022. The parent business of Ark game creator Studio Wildcard filed a document with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission that contains this information. According to the same article, Microsoft spent $2.5 million to make it available for six months through Xbox Game Pass. Additionally, Microsoft spent $2.3 million to make its follow-up, Ark 2, an Xbox Game Pass release on the first day. Ark 2 will be released on PC and Xbox Series X/S in 2023, as announced at The Game Awards in 2020.

    Rarely is the sum paid by Sony or Microsoft for games to be added to PS Plus or Xbox Game Pass made public. This information sheds light on the price associated with adding games of a similar calibre to the individual subscription services. In the future, it will be fascinating to watch whether other game development companies disclose the sums they received from Sony or Microsoft in exchange for adding their titles to PS Plus or Xbox Game Pass.

    Not all PlayStation Plus members got Ark: Survival Evolved in March 2022, it should be emphasised. PS Plus subscribers in Asia received a completely new game from Sony in the form of Brothers: A Tale of Two Sons. When it comes to Asian regions, such differences are rather frequent because members frequently receive a bonus or alternate game virtually every month.
