Ubisoft has declared that Avatar: Frontiers of Pandora and long-gestating pirate ship multiplayer game Skull and Bones, will finally be seeing the light of day during the current financial year (via Eurogamer). That's sometime before 1st April 2023, if you're wondering.
Avatar: Frontiers of Pandora was announced back in February 2017, in development at The Division studio Massive Entertainment, using its proprietary Snowdrop Engine. Presently, the game is pencilled in for a loose ‘2022’ launch, possibly ahead of, or alongside, new Avatar movie, ‘Avatar: The Way of Water’, this December.
As far as Skull and Bones is concerned, a release date for that is currently anyone's guess, but the recent leaking of test footage seems to suggest that its launch might be not be too far off. Meanwhile, the free-to-play The Division: Heartland is still in the pipeline, and rumours abound that a smaller, more traditional, stealth-driven Assassin's Creed game featuring Valhalla's Basim could be happening this year, too.
Ubisoft has plenty going on, then, and perhaps we'll hear more during this June's Summer Game Fest.
