With Ubisoft announcing the cancellation of Ghost Recon Frontline and two unannounced games, the company has also delayed Avatar: Frontiers of Pandora, which had been pencilled in for release later this year. Now, it's scheduled to drop sometime in 2023.
“We are committed to delivering a cutting-edge immersive experience that takes full advantage of next-gen technology, as this amazing global entertainment brand represents a major multi-year opportunity for Ubisoft,” a statement from Ubi reads. “We also decided to release in 2023-24 a smaller unannounced premium game, originally slated for 2022-23.”
According to Ubisoft, the delay is due to “a reflection of the current ongoing constraints on productions across the industry,”, and adds that it is “hard at work to design the most efficient working conditions to ensure both flexibility for our teams as well as strong productivity while delivering the best experiences to players.”
In development at The Division studio Massive Entertainment, using its proprietary Snowdrop Engine, Avatar: Frontiers of Pandora had been slated to arrive in tandem with forthcoming movie sequel, Avatar: The Way of Water, which is out on 16th December 2022. However, director James Cameron has loads of Avatar flicks in the pipeline, so maybe Ubi can get Avatar: Frontiers of Pandora to tie in with one of those.
Avatar: Frontiers of Pandora will be coming to Xbox Series X|S, PlayStation 5, and PC in 2023.
