The Avatar video game is as long overdue as Avatar 2

Did you know ? An Avatar video game is in development under the Ubisoft flag. Announced a long time ago, it is normally expected by March 2023. The only problem: we have never really seen it.

The end of 2022 will mark the great return of Avatar to our screens. After a long absence, the saga will continue its much-loved epic with a second film subtitled The Way of the Water (the first trailer has been released). And, you may have forgotten, a video game is currently being prepared by the Massive Entertainment studio on behalf of Ubisoft. It will be available before the end of March 2023, promised the multinational.

In its financial statement published on May 11, Ubisoft discussed the 2022/2023 fiscal year and, above all, the games that will allow it to carry its growth. Three ambitious productions are cited: Skull & Bones (a real Arlesian), Mario + Rabbids: Sparks of Hope (exclusive Nintendo Switch) and, therefore, the famous Avatar: Frontiers of Pandora. The problem? We haven’t seen him much.

It would be high time to show Avatar: Frontiers of Pandora

It’s been a long time since we heard aboutAvatar: Frontiers of Pandora – the formalization dates from March 2017. At the time, we only knew the identity of the development studio – Massively Entertainment, therefore, – and the name of the 3D engine that will bring an interactive version of Pandora to life. It took until June 2021 to see a first trailer.

The video in question is more designed to impress, recalling that the Snowdrop engine rhymes with flamboyant rendering and that Pandora is a lush universe. On the other hand, it does not really allow you to get a concrete idea of ​​the gameplay. On this point, it is necessary for the moment to rely on the few information available on the official site. Avatar: Frontiers of Pandora is described as a first-person action/adventure game. We can discover from the western territories, a hitherto unknown region of Pandora », « a world populated by unique creatures and new characters “.

If it makes sense, commercially speaking, to launch Avatar: Frontiers of Pandora at the same time as the film, it should be remembered that Ubisoft is not always very punctual with release dates. Therefore, we will not be surprised by a possible delay for this blockbuster planned for PS5, Xbox Series S, Xbox Series X, PC and Stadia. Only certainty? Massive Entertainment is a very, very serious studio, which has produced one of the best Ubisoft games of recent years (The Division 2). He is also the one who will take care of Star Wars.
