Once again Atlas has been delayed. Originally set for an Early Access release earlier this week, Atlas announced that the game would be delayed and released to Content Creators Friday, December 21st at 9pm Pacific, but that doesn’t seem to be the case.
Update: Atlas has been delayed until tomorrow, December 22nd. Read below.
We’re still working on a build. We will let you know when we have something more concrete, we think it will take at least 5 hours. Check back in the morning for another update.

Thousands of Twitch viewers are tuning in to watch their favorite streamers stare at the Atlas Server List, reading ‘No sessions found.’
It seems Atlas updated their Twitter Description, changing the date from the 21st to the 22nd.
Some streamers like Lirik have found ways to pass the time, of course, still with Atlas open and listed in the Twitch directory.
If you haven’t heard of Atlas, check out the extended length gameplay trailer below.
Originally set for December 13th, then pushed to December 19th, now the 21st, and still no game. Streamers and players are growing restless waiting hours for nothing.
Hopefully the next release date will be accurate and we won’t see any issues!
About the game
From the creators of ARK: Survival Evolved comes ATLAS – a massively multiplayer first-and-third-person fantasy pirate adventure. ATLAS will host up to 40,000 players exploring the same Globe simultaneously, with an unprecedented scale of cooperation and conflict! Stake your claim in this endless open world as you conquer territory, construct ships, search for buried treasure, assemble forts, plunder settlements and hire crew to join your powerful growing armada. Start small then expand your spheres of influence from a small island, up to an unstoppable pirate empire that spans across the oceans. Wage battle against enemy fleets as you singlehandedly command large ships of war using the captaining system (or divide up to the responsibilities among your trusted lieutenants), or take control of any weapon directly with your own character.
Dive deep into the briny water to explore permanent sunken wrecks and recover salvage, unearth the loot from procedurally-generated Treasure Maps and challenge zones, or complete challenging main questlines. Team up with other aspiring adventurers and sail into the vast ocean to discover new lands rich with region-specific elements, tame exotic natural and mythical creatures, raid forgotten tombs, confront powerful ancient gods and even build and administer your own colonies, cities, and civilizations to dominate the ATLAS in this ultimate quest for fortune and glory!
MMO On the Grandest Scale
Physically sail in real-time across the vast oceans with the proprietary server network technology. Explorers will voyage to over 700 unique landmasses across 45,000 square kilometers, with thousands of Discovery Zones, and ten distinct world regions each having their own unique resources, creatures, secrets, and environment hazards! There is a separate PvE ATLAS for players who don’t wish to play any PVP.
Construct the Ship of Your Dreams, Plank by Plank!
Build drydocks and start with a dinghy rowboat, basic raft, tiny sloop or nimble schooner, moving on up to your own versatile brigantine or titanic galleon capable of transporting hundreds of crew and extensive cargo. Name your ship in big bold letters, paint and copy your own pirate flag and custom-place all the pieces of your ship — which sails and where, planks and gunports, every single structure piece has a physical Weight and Material — to function exactly how you want.
Captain your Crew!
