Ubisoft and Massive are making an Avatar game

Set on the "beautiful and risky moon from the prominent Avatar film franchise", the game will be created using the studio's Snowdrop game engine - the same one used for its post-apocalyptic third-person shooter The Division.

On February 28th, 2017, entering the alien world of James Cameron's Avatar becomes suddenly possible to video game fans.

Details on the game have not been shared yet. However we can look at the pedigree of lead developer Massive, which previously worked on games like The Division and Far Cry 3.

The game is the result of a partnership between Ubisoft, film production company Lightstorm Entertainment, and Fox Interactive.

Per AV Club, we don't know much about the game but it's likely in its infancy stage. Our mission is always to make the best games in the world. "It's a privilege to work with them and we're honoured that they've entrusted us to create an experience worthy of the Avatar name". His huge scaled blockbuster epic, Avatar, was a gargantuan success when it was released in 2009. It ultimately shared the same fate of many other movie tie-in games with a Metacritic review score average around 60 and so-so sales of 2.7 million. The Ubisoft Studio and developing partners wants to captivate Pandora's moon setting. At this time, there is no confirmed release date. Ubisoft developers say they are in awe of the game and it's a "fantastic and humbling experience" to create a game based on the film. Currently, the developers require a big workforce to complete this overhauling Avatar video game.
