Avatar became a big hit when it was released in 2009, and its fan-following went on to support the game as well. The game was made by Ubisoft after they partnered with James Cameron. It was a prequel to the movie. Now, Ubisoft is again working on another game based on the series.
The new one is under development at The Division Studio, Ubisoft Massive and it’ll run on the engine, Snowdrop. The game is being stated as, “Cutting-Edge”, although there is no information supporting this statement. Ubisoft presented a teaser video, along with the commentary from James Cameron himself.
Note: The scenes in this teaser are from the old game. The new one’s footage hasn’t been released yet.
It looks like there would be four sequels to the first movie. I got this piece of info from the statement Ubisoft’s Massive managing director David Polfeldt made.
James Cameron and Lightstorm Entertainment changed the way we think about immersive storytelling with the first Avatar, and the ambition that they have for the forthcoming films and this game is really inspiring. It’s a privilege to work with them and we’re honored that they’ve entrusted us to create an experience worthy of the Avatar name.
Cameron received the pitch for the game from Ubisoft, by means of a prototype. However, we don’t know anything on the prototype as well. Everything has been kept hidden, to step up the anticipation and curiosity among the fans. But, Cameron revealed a little more information about the game. It looks like the game is going to be set on Pandora.
What impressed me about Massive were the group’s passion for this project and the power of its Snowdrop engine. I believe Ubisoft’s team at Massive Entertainment are absolutely the right partners to bring the beauty and danger of Pandora to life.
This is all I have now on the game or the movie sequels. Further reports will me made when new information is available.
