The most significant year for James Cameron’s Avatar series was supposed to be 2022. The release of Massive Entertainment and Ubisoft’s video game Avatar: Frontiers of Pandora was supposed to come before Avatar’s December 16 theatrical release: The Way of Water.
Avatar: Frontiers of Pandora won’t be released in 2022, but Avatar: The Way of Water is still anticipated to have its December 16 theatrical debut.
Avatar: Frontiers of Pandora will now be published in the 2023–24 fiscal year, according to Ubisoft’s first-quarter report for the 2022–23 fiscal year.
Beyond stating that the decision to delay the release of Avatar: Frontiers of Pandora would enable the developer to produce better a “cutting-edge immersive experience that takes full use of next-gen technology,” Ubisoft didn’t offer a specific explanation for why the decision was taken.
Ubisoft announced the postponement of Avatar: Frontiers of Pandora and the delay of an unnamed game initially planned for the fiscal year 2022–2023.
The game, which Ubisoft referred to as an “unannounced premium game,” has also been delayed until the 2023–2024 fiscal year.
The game in question is unknown, although rumours suggest it may be Assassin’s Creed Rift, the purported smaller-scale Assassin’s Creed project that was first expected to release this year.
But before becoming too alarmed, fans should remember that the mystery game might be something distinct and unconnected to the Assassin’s Creed series.
Avatar: Frontiers of Pandora’s delay may surprise some fans, but many probably anticipated it. Since almost little gameplay footage of Avatar: Frontiers of Pandora has been released, the game’s delay until the 2023–24 fiscal year should be no surprise.
So that fans have something to keep them entertained, new details about the competition should surface sooner rather than later.
Avatar: Frontiers of Pandora will probably be discussed during the Ubisoft Forward event on September 10 at noon PT; however, this has not yet been confirmed.
This year, Ubisoft is anticipated to use the Ubisoft Forward event as its E3 substitute, showcasing its forthcoming releases.
Even with its release date being delayed, Avatar: Frontiers of Pandora is still one of the most significant upcoming Ubisoft titles, so it would make sense for the game to have a substantial presence at Ubisoft Forward. However, fans will have to tune in to find out.
