Unfortunate news from Ubisoft's Q1 earnings call on Thursday, July 21st. Avatar: Frontiers of Pandora has been delayed from an expected 2022 release to an undetermined date that could see Ubisoft Massive's ambitious open-world Avatar RPG releasing as late as 2023 or 2024.
Ubisoft CEO Yves Guillemot said that the delay is due to Ubisoft's desire to "make [Avatar] a video game industry brand... It is important for us that we come with something that is perfect." Guillemont echoes the same strive for perfection that has become associated with James Cameron's properties late in his career.
This delay, however, was not entirely unexpected. In March, it was announced that the David Polfeldt, UbiMassive's studio director for Avatar and its unannounced Star Wars project was resigning after a long sabbatical. This, among other prominent staffing departures, has left some wondering about the state of Frontiers of Pandora's development. With little to show and the 2022 release deadline fast approaching, it follows that Ubisoft would allow Frontiers some additional time in the oven- something not at all unusual for the Avatar franchise.
