Avid moviegoers and those who watched its first installment several years ago were treated to the ultimate visual spectacle and extravaganza with the showing of “Avatar: The Way of Water.”

This film by James Cameron has attracted a lot of fans and garnered a lot of demand from many audiences worldwide that, as of press time, it has crossed the $1 billion mark at the international box office. According to Deadline, “Avatar: The Way of Water” will become the number one worldwide release of 2022, surpassing “Top Gun: Maverick’s” $1.5 billion. It has also earned the title of being the 14th biggest movie in history.

And for all you gamers out there who loved the “Avatar” sequel, you are in for a treat. A game inspired by the movie is rumored to be in development by the world-renowned game publisher Ubisoft. The name? “Avatar: Frontiers of Pandora.”

Unfortunately, there has not been much news or development from the part of Ubisoft regarding the game apart from a tiny snippet released during the Ubisoft Forward that happened during the summer of last year. 

This small snippet provided gamers and fans with some of the earliest glimpses of “Avatar: Frontiers of Pandora’s” gameplay that these gamers can expect when it officially drops. In the snippet, it could be deduced that the game will most likely feature a first-person open-world action adventure instead of third-person gameplay. 

Also, in the narrative, “Avatar: Frontiers of Pandora” is set to revolve around a standalone story plot where gamers can play as Na’vi and embark on a journey to explore the Western Frontier.

What makes the game different from the movie is that the Western Frontier is not something previously dealt with in the movies by James Cameron. Rather, it is an entirely new setting that the game will tackle. Thus, it is also highly likely that the story is slightly transgressed from the movie’s story. 

Moreover, speculations also had it that players of the game will also get to encounter and interact with new characters as they look to push back against the colonizing forces of the RDA. The game’s main objective will be to defeat these invaders and protect the natural ecosystem of Pandora.

“In this new, standalone story, play as a Na’vi and embark on a journey across the Western Frontier, a never-before-seen part of Pandora. Explore a living and reactive world inhabited by unique creatures and new characters, and push back the formidable RDA forces that threaten it,” a statement from the official website of Ubisoft’s “Avatar: Frontiers of Pandora” said.

Furthermore, according to a certain netizen named Geoff Keighley, Ubisoft plans to ship the “Avatar: Frontiers of Pandora” game by March 31st, 2023, alongside other games. 

The game title has been in development for quite some time now, and it seems it is taking too long before Ubisoft actually releases it. It was initially announced almost five years ago, with a trailer dropping during the summer of 2022.

Rumor mills are saying the most obvious reason why the release of the game is taking so much time is because of the recent catalog of games that Ubisoft is already on its way to release. Additionally, these speculations also say the release of “Avatar: Frontiers of Pandora” is postponed to give “Avatar: The Way of Water” some space for promotion.

We hope Ubisoft will provide more information about the game in the coming weeks or months.

Set more than a decade after the events of the first movie, “Avatar: The Way of Water” tells the story of the Sully family – Jake, Neytiri, and their children – the trouble the follows them, the lengths they traverse to keep each other safe, the battles they face to stay alive, and the tragedies they ensure. 

The film is directed by James Cameron, and also produced by him, together with Jon Landau. “Avatar: The Way of Water” stars Zoe Saldana, Sam Worthington, Stephen Lang, Sigourney Weaver, Joel David Moore, Kate Winslet, and more.
