Avatar: Frontiers of Pandora the next gen game being developed by Ubisoft will be delayed past 2022. With very little information coming out about the game in the past year, sadly this isn’t a huge surprise to me. However it is a big let down, only because I am so looking forward to exploring Pandora virtually, and hoped I’d be doing so even before Avatar: The Way of Water came out. The game was first announced in 2017 and Ubisoft has said it won’t arrive before April of 2023 at the earliest. April is the start of Ubisofts next fiscal year, and it’s expected between April 2023-March 2024. I do want them to take their time and make this game be as great as I know it can. I’d rather have a delay than see it come out on time but not be up to par. I know Covid has impacted the ability of talent to come to the office and work directly on the game, as we’ve seen with so many facest of our lives, Covid has really made everything more difficult.
“We want to make [Avatar] a video game industry brand. It is important for us that we come with something that is perfect.”
