A general launch date for Ancestors: The Humankind Odyssey was just announced tonight at The Game Awards 2018.

Ancestors is a third-person open-world survival game that begins 10 million years ago. Your behavior will create and hone traits to be passed down from generation to generation of developing hominids. Every choice affects the future of your clan.

The game will launch at some in 2019 for Steam and other systems’ virtual consoles as well as PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. Admittedly, this is not the most specific date we could have received – the game will apparently launch during Take-Two’s 2019 fiscal year which ends on March 31, 2020 – but this is more solid than what we’ve been able to go on since 2015 when it was first announced.

“We want to give an experience no player has ever lived before”, said Patrice Désilets, co-founder and creative director of Panache Digital Games in a press release following the event. “Our small team will always seek to push the boundaries of what our medium is. The very early evolution of the humankind is an ambitious, truly immersive, and exclusive setting that will delight gamers of all types.”
