Avatar director James Cameron says he is excited about the Ubisoft game Avatar: Frontiers of Pandora.
He made this known in an interview with IGN. “We’re really excited about what Ubisoft is doing with the game. I’m not telling them what to do – they can control their world, their businesses, their markets. We’re keeping an eye on them so they don’t do anything that doesn’t fit the story in terms of Na’vi culture.”
The first Avatar film was released in 2009, while Cameron is now working on four sequels. The first sequel, Avatar: The Way of Water, will hit theaters in December this year. The Ubisoft game should have been released this year as well, but has been delayed until after March 2023.
Cameron: “Ubisoft will probably have ideas of their own and I’m not exactly sure how that works, but we want to create a persistent, visitable world with the sequels. If it all works out, we’ll have a new film every other year for now. We also have (World of Pandora) in Flordia, and who knows what else will come in other Disney parks.”
Avatar: Frontiers of Pandora is being developed by Massive Entertainment, the studio behind the Division games. The game runs on the same Snowdrop engine. The game is in development for PC, PlayStation 5, Xbox Series X and S, Google Stadia and Amazon Luna and is set to tell a unique story within the Avatar universe.
