He says he’s also frustrated, but it’s just another hurdle to overcome. The end of the race is already near.
And yes, you can remain positive and upbeat while being frustrated.
You don't think I'm frustrated? I am.
Yet I know this is just another hurdle to jump on the way to the end of the race. And we're almost there.

That’s going on: ARK Genesis Part 2 is due to be released on June 2, 2021, after several postponements. Players have been waiting since 12:00 a.m. local time for Wildcard to comment on a release period, but so far in vain.
At this point in time – 3:45 p.m. – there is no official statement from the development team. Only community manager Cedric has announced that he is not excited yet, but could not say more. He said that at 1:16 a.m. and since then there has been no radio broadcast.
If I say remain calm, you freak out.
If I don't say anything, you freak out
While I can't give you what you want, does it make you feel any better I'm not nervous…
