Ubisoft Announces New Avatar Game Based off the Films; Massive Entertainment will Helm the Project

Ubisoft has announced today that a new Avatar game from the feature films by James Cameron is currently in the works. The upcoming title is being developed on the Snowdrop engine, the same engine behind Tom Clancy: The Division and the recently delayed South Park: Fractured But Whole.

The video game publisher Ubisoft will be partnering up with Lightstorm Entertainment and Fox Interactive to bring the project to life. The game will be brought to fruition by the The Division developers, Massive Entertainment.

Here’s what James Cameron had to say about the upcoming project:

“What impressed me about Massive were the group’s passion for this project, and the power of its Snowdrop engine,” Cameron says. “With the power of [Snowdrop], and the team’s passion and obsessive focus on detail, we know they’re the right group to bring the beauty and danger of Pandora to life.”

With four sequels to Avatar in development, Massive and Lightstorm are working side-by-side to expand on the movie universe in new ways and offer the freedom to experience Pandora like never before.

The upcoming Avatar title is scheduled to release for PC and Consoles in 2018.
