Primal Carnage is a PC game that pits humans against dinosaurs in PvP action. Primal Carnage: Genesis was meant to serve as a prequel to the multiplayer battle, and it was going to be a single player affair.
In a post on PlayStation Blog, Aaron Pollack of Circle 5 Studios announced that Genesis has been put on hold at the end of Summer 2013. That hold has since been indefinite.
The good news, however, is that Pollack announced another Primal Carnage with the surname Extinction for two separate platforms in that same post. Fans of the original can consider Primal Carnage: Extinction a proper sequel to the awesome online shooter.
The game has been announced for both PC and PlayStation 4, and it’s set to hit the PC this fall and PS4 in early 2015. Here’s how Pollack describes Extinction for those new to the Primal Carnage brand:
Primal Carnage: Extinction is a class-based, online multiplayer shooter unlike any other on the PS4 platform, featuring fast-paced combat, diverse environments, and over-the-top action. On a mysterious island overrun with prehistoric monsters, players can choose to fight as a variety of legendary dinosaurs or to join the human mercenary team armed with a unique, distinctive, and destructive arsenal aimed at making these bloodthirsty beasts extinct once and for all.
I picked up Primal Carnage for super cheap during a Steam sale sometime during the course of 2013. I don’t regret it at all, that game is a blast. Now that console gamers will see this man versus dinosaur action, I’m excited once again.
Pollack did take time to say that Genesis is on hold until the team finishes with Extinction. After the new title launches, they’ll consider moving forward with Genesis based on its success.
