Ubisoft Working on a New Avatar Game

February 28, 2017 | Posted by Jeremy Thomas

A new Avatar game is on the works. Ubisoft, Lightstorm Entertainment and Fox Interactive are partnering on the game, which will be developed by Massive (The Division) and will be released for PC and consoles. The game will use Massive’s Snowdrop engine that was seen in both The Division and the upcoming South Park: The Fractured But Whole.

“What impressed me about Massive were the group’s passion for this project, and the power of its Snowdrop engine,” said James Cameron. “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.”

Massive and Lightstorm are working together, according to the announcement to expand the universe of the franchise and give players the freedom to learn about the world of Pandora in new ways. There’s no release window yet revealed. The announcement video is below:
