As director James Cameron is developing his next four Avatar sequels, he and his Lightstorm Entertainment production company are also teaming up with Ubisoft’s Massive Entertainment to develop a cutting-edge new game based on the franchise. This is the same studio behind the awesome game The Division. They’ve even released an announcement video showing us what we can expect from the game. It even features interviews with the talented people involved with developing it, including Cameron, who says:
“What impressed me about Massive were the group’s passion for this project, and the power of its Snowdrop engine. 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.”
The game will offer players complete freedom to explore the world of Pandora in new and different ways. Massive and Lightstorm are currently looking for people to join their team to work on the game. If you’re interested and you’ve got the skills, you can check out the list of open positions here.
With the amount of work and detail that Cameron puts into his films, I have no doubt that he will expect nothing less than greatness from this game, so fans of the films can expect something pretty spectacular.
The four Avatar sequels currently in development will all be filmed simultaneously. Avatar 2 is expected to be released in December 2018. That will be followed by the sequels being released in December 2020, 2022, and 2023. There’s no word on when the game will be released but I’m sure it will happen in conjunction with one of the movie release dates.
