Ubisoft and Lightstorm Entertainment are partnering to bring the James Cameron’s Avatar series to life in a new, AAA title, which is being developed by Massive Entertainment, the companies announced today.
The studio behind Tom Clancy’s The Division will use its Snowdrop game engine to create a game inside the world of Pandora, though the specifics what that game will look like were fairly murky. In a video shown to press promoting the game, which only included developer interviews and footage from the Avatar film, Massive employees said players would be able to explore the world of Pandora. That could hint to an open-world style game similar to The Division.
This is not the first time Ubisoft and Lightstorm have partnered for a game. In 2009, Ubisoft released James Cameron’s Avatar: The Game. The third-person shooter was released for Xbox 360, PlayStation 3 and PC.
Ubisoft has said this new game will be available for consoles and PCs. It currently has no release date.
