Ubisoft has revealed via their latest financial earnings report that the previously announced action-adventure title, Avatar Frontier of Pandora, has been delayed to a new release window of 2023 – 2024. Specific reasoning for this delay was not provided, but it can assuredly be primarily attributed to unforeseen technical developments and the ongoing pandemic.
Additionally of note is that a “smaller unannounced premium game” initially planned to release between 2022 and 2023 will now release in 2023-2024. It’s anyone’s guess as to what potential title this unknown project could be.
Avatar Frontier of Pandora is being developed using the newly updated Snowdrop engine and takes players to Pandora where they will fight against the Resources Development Administration (RDA). The events of the game seem to follow elements of the film where the humans are extracting resources after Earth has been depleted. However, the planet is inhabited by the Na’vi who players will take control of.
This is a standalone story where players will travel across the Western Frontier, which is a never-before-seen part of Pandora. There will be new characters and creatures, but we’re still waiting for more information.
Avatar Frontier of Pandora is currently planned for PlayStation 5, Xbox Series X, and PC.
