An Avatar Game Is Coming and James Cameron Is Very Excited
Avatar holds the position as the highest-grossing movie of all time (not accounting for inflation). We're finally going to see more in the franchise courtesy of Avatar: The Way of Water, which releases in theaters this December. But that's not the only avenue audiences can take to see more of Pandora. A new Avatar game is in the works, and it already has the seal of approval from James Cameron himself, according to IGN.

The Avatar director sat down with IGN to talk about the upcoming video game based on his franchise — Avatar: Frontiers of Pandora. It's in the works from Ubisoft, and apparently, it's got James Cameron incredibly excited.

As he put it, "We’re very excited about what Ubisoft is doing with their game authoring. I don’t tell them what to do — they know their world, their business, their market. We just keep a close eye that they don’t do anything that’s not canonical in terms of Na’vi culture and what the RDA is doing on Pandora and all that sort of thing."

The game was first announced back in 2017, and things have been quiet on its front for some time. Of course, when it comes to Avatar, long production cycles are to be expected. Still, Cameron sounds pleased at the idea of having a cohesive Avatar universe at his disposal.

He goes on to say, "Ubisoft on their side are likely to push back a little bit and I haven’t drilled down on exactly what the deal is with that but what we’re looking for now is to create a persistent, visitable world with a cadence of sequels. If we’re successful we’ll go ahead and we’ll have a movie every two years or so for quite a while. And we’ve got the [World of Pandora] in Florida — and who knows that might wind up at other theme parks in the Disney regime as well.”

The game has been delayed to April of 2023, and there's a real possibility it could be pushed back even further than that. Fortunately, fans of Pandora have The Way of Water to look forward to this December.
