Primal Carnage: Genesis, the single player story prequel remains on hold

Circle 5 studios has announced that Primal Carnage:Extinction, the follow-on from 2012’s asymmetric, class-based multiplayer shooter Primal Carnage (think Evolve only with dinosaurs) is on route to Steam next month with a PS4 port penciled-in for the first quarter of 2015.

As stated on Extinction’s official website the game will launch with 12 maps. two game modes - team deathmatch and an objective driven variant - nine playable dinosaur classes and five human classes. After launch six months worth of additional content will be added to the game bringing new modes, skins and weapons.

A beta for Extinction begins on Steam on 10th November, with the game’s full launch to follow. PS4 will then be getting the game sometime early next year.

Primal Carnage fans who have been waiting for the single-player story-based prequel, Primal Carnage Genesis (initially announced in March last year) will have to wait, although the word from Circle 5’s Aaron Pollack is that the game hasn’t been abandoned altogether. Speaking on the PlayStation Blog Pollack states, “if everything goes well for us with Primal Carnage: Extinction we would definitely consider pursuing Genesis. For the moment, however, Genesis is effectively still on hold.”
