So why isn’t Lost Ark on consoles? The game’s been grabbing people’s attention for years now, through early access periods and the like, but developer Smilegate has never committed to promises of a port. In fact, previous comments have suggested that a console version simply isn’t something that the studio has ever planned for.
Even if you just follow PlayStation news, there’s a good chance you’ve heard about Lost Ark. Since its full launch in February, the online action RPG has been a major hit on PC, topping concurrent user records for weeks at a time and raking in massive earnings from in-game sales. It’s been a tremendous free-to-play success storey, similar to Genshin Impact.
Of course, you could argue that there’s already plenty of demand — and again, has been for years — but ultimately it’s going to be up to Amazon’s publishing arm. In any case, it would be interesting to see if Lost Ark could come close to replicating its PC success on consoles. Would you like to see Lost Ark arrive on PlayStation at some point in the future?

But the title’s immense popularity means that involved parties are always going to be asked about potential ports — as is the case in a new interview from VG247. Amazon Games’ Soomin Park gives a wishy-washy answer, but at least it exists: “If Lost Ark on consoles is something that fans really want, then I think it’s something both parties would consider!”
