Sure Predaking is around but he's barely had a full paragraph of dialogue throughout the series thus far.
What "beast apocalypse" does the title refer to, exactly?
All I can see from the title is that it refers to hunting something beast-related, which the fossilized remains of the Predacons most definitely were.
Valid point viewed semantically but it doesn't correlate with the toyline getting figures retooled and powered up in ready for a Predacon uprising along with a show highlighting a complete new threat/breed of Cybertronians that,implied, will overthrow the status quo of the war as we know it.
Is it not obvious that the show and toyline are operating under very different mindsets? The toyline has its own storyline separate from the show, while the show is trying to finish the story it's been trying to tell since the beginning. The two share the same name for formalities and for brand uniformity.
The show even has its own creative vision for Predaking that differs from that of the toyline. In the toy bios, Predaking is a monstrous tyrant bent on death and destruction. In the show, however, he's noble and compassionate, yet still fearsome, but almost nothing like his toy counterpart. Ergo, the toyline needn't be used to predict what the cartoon should be about when the cartoon doesn't necessarily need to strictly adhere to it.
And, as stated before, we ARE getting more Preds in the movie. The makers have looked on the boards and saw that we want more Preds in TF: Prime, so they made the movie to do just that and more.
