Probably not. Karna wasn't in Extra. Now they might not follow the story exaxtly (and hopefully won't because while the characters were good the plot was pretty boring), but they haven't shown any servants not in Extra so far.

It depends on which story Nasu wants to animate, if it only focus on Extra he wont be in this anime, or if Nasu goes with Extella Zero[Story which leads to Fate/Extella] or include Extra/CCC in Last Encore there's a high possibility that Karna will be in this anime.

That would be cool, but I wonder if we will. I guess someone else could summon her.

IIRC that Servant isn't included in Extella/Zero so the next CM would be a good indicator of which storyline the anime will follow.
Oh, and I disagree with people saying the original was boring: IMO, it was the good balance between Nasu's excessive prose and game flow. CCC went way overboard and I didn't like that much.

I think that was just me? I did not mean to compare anything to CCC which I've never played through.

Extra was super boring though. The main characters and their interactions were interesting, but the story was just not there. The setting being limited to just the school grounds and what is essentially the Danger Room doesn't do any attempt at story telling any favors either.

I'm also not sure what you mean by game flow... you literally just go collect 3 clues and go into the god awful dungeon to play rock paper scissors (usually related to finding those clues), and repeat that every game week. This is another aspect that doesn't do the story any favors because it divides the game into a bunch of little, independent mini arcs.

It is quite possibly the worst game I've ever beaten, and it hands down has the worst story of any Fate material I've seen/read. That first part has more to do with the game mechanics than anything else. The game did make me a huge Nero fan, and I whipped out the wallet to get her in FGO.

I actually liked the story. As I said, Nasu went way overboard in CCC, and while most of his stuff works in a VN, it didn't in CCC, as it created a series of padding issues the ultimately made me quit. Not to mention that while he wanted the player to sympathize with a certain character, it actually made the opposite.
The game does have a few nice scenes though, especially a hilarious one with spoiler[Gilgamesh and Cast Off...(just look it up on youtube)]

The game wasn't very good, but I liked the idea of discovering the Servants this way. And in general, stuff like Caster was nice to see in the story.

Also, if you think it was boring, in CCC you have to go to the same dungeon three times during a chapter just to watch a cutscene then get back then repeat...
