    Will sharks be featured? It would be a brilliant way to combine naval and land battles even more!

    Sharks are prehistoric; there has to be sharks.

    And we need big sharks.

    Great!!! With hominids and dinos diplomacy should be easier to program, so we can expect for a more coherent CAI this time? :D

    This is a joke right....please tell me it is....I cant say my love for Total War will continue if you guys start making strategical combat simulators with prehistoric creatures. Yeah, cool to see two t-rexs rip eachothers limbs off but with your policy of no blood and with the limited scope of this idea and time period, it will not do good in my own opinion. Please dont make this game. Way too much other history to pursue then to go that fart back. Not to mention you all have a good reputation of bringing history into a new light. Dinosaures are more science these days than history.

    YES!!! My dream has come true! :D

    This will for sure become the best Total War game ever. The time period of the dinosaurs make an excellent game. Tactics and strategy have never been so important as it was 65 million years ago.
