Ubisoft have set Massive Entertainment the task of creating a new game based on James Cameron’s Avatar movies. Massive were the team who created The Division and are now working on the AAA game set on Pandora for consoles and PC. The title will “expand and deepen” the Avatar universe along with the four (!) sequels currently in production.
“What impressed me about Massive were the group’s passion for this project and the power of its Snowdrop engine,” said Cameron. “I believe Ubisoft’s team at Massive Entertainment are absolutely the right partners to bring the beauty and danger of Pandora to life”
You may recall a game based on the first movie back in 2009 created by Ubisoft Montreal, it wasn’t particularly outstanding but managed to shift 2.7 million units in the end which is probably why Ubisoft held on to the franchise.
