Ubisoft has announced that the new Avatar game developed by Massive Entertainment, announced in 2017, has been delayed to a later date. The new Avatar game, whose movie was also delayed, will meet the actors in 2022.
Released in 2009 and retaining the title of the world’s most watched movie for many years, Avatar picks up where it left off with its new movie due out in 2021. But Avatar isn’t all about movies.
Avatar also had a game released at the same time as the movie: James Camerons Avatar: The Game. However, the game developed by Ubisoft, on which the film is based, received mixed reviews. Ubisoft had rolled up its sleeves for an Avatar game after years, but apparently had to be postponed.
Avatar game postponed to 2022
Ubisoft has delayed the Avatar game until 2022, so the game will be released in a similar period to Avatar 2. The game will meet players in the fiscal year April 2021 – March 2022. The company previously announced that it has postponed the release date of Far Cry 6 and Rainbow Six Quarantine games.
Massive Entertainment, a Ubisoft studio, is the developer of the new Avatar game. The studio had previously developed games such as Tom Clancy’s The Division, Assassin’s Creed Revelations and Far Cry 3. Massive Entertainment uses the Snowdrop game engine in the new Avatar game.
Ubisoft announced its new Avatar game in 2017. In the announcement, the company stated that Massive Entertainment is partnering with Fox Interacitve and James Cameron’s studio Lightstorm Entertainment to develop the game. It is not yet clear when Avatar’s new game will be released and which consoles will be released.
