The Primitive+ Update for the game was due release with this update but it’s now confirmed that the Primitive update is delayed. The Primitive Update is delayed because it’s not yet completed.

The Developer commented the following stating that

In terms of Primitive+, we won’t be releasing the update for it this patch. I know it sucks, and you guys have been patient, but due to the necessary XDK update, we need more time to iterate on the Total Conversion itself in console form (and this also means PS4 won’t get the Prim+ update because most of the time our work is done on Xbox and then ported to PS4 for Abstraction to wrap up) especially as it’s an alternative game mode and there could be a number of issues arising from the XDK change and we don’t want to take that chance, esp seeing as we already had to extend our QA for the base game.

So all those who are waiting for the Primitive+ Update, they will have to wait a little bit longer. Meanwhile, you can enjoy the Update 1.14 and do let us know about your experiences with the new Dinos and the improved game performance.
