Less than two months ago, we reported that mobile MMO title Avatar: Reckoning had secured a 2024 release date from studio Archosaur Games. Now, a new update comes in the form of a recently released a shareholder update that marks a sharp pivot from the previous news.
In their January 23rd shareholder update, Archosaur Games announced that plans to launch Avatar: Reckoning have been “terminated”, among a “strategic adjustment of the Company’s products and operations.”
With this announcement Avatar: Reckoning becomes the latest Avatar game in a long line of mobile titles to fall short of release, the most recent being Pandora Rising- a base building mobile strategy game which was cancelled in April of 2022. The cancellation of Avatar: Reckoning comes amid restructuring from a separation between publisher Level Infinite and studio Archosaur Games, which occurred early last year.
With Avatar: Frontiers of Pandora officially in players hands and selling well in global markets, mobile enthusiasts will have to hope for future Avatar game titles to be announced for handheld devices.

Before now, there has been no official word on whether or not the names have translations or meanings behind them, they were simply a selection of Na'vi language names that didn't have any further definitions.

If you want to know what the Banshee names mean in Avatar: Frontiers, you're in luck. Here's a comprehensive list of the ones we know so far:
Unfortunately, Temek and Nimun were not included in the list of revealed Ikran names, however they may be added to the Na'vi dictionary at a future point. For now, players who chose those names will have to imagine for themselves what they might mean!
Frommer also revealed Na'vi names for a broad selection of flora and fauna from Avatar: Frontiers of Pandora, which is sure to thrill anyone who is learning Na'vi.
