Avatar Mobile Game Will Get Here Before the Sequel
It makes sense we’re getting another game based on James Cameron’s Avatar, given that it’s the most money making movie in the world, ever. And it makes sense that it’s going to be a massively multi-player mobile strategy game, something that’s huge right now. What’s weird is that it didn’t come out sooner. It seems like an Avatar mobile game should have already been made.
The game is being developed by Kabam, under an agreement between Lightstorm Entertainment (Cameron’s production company) and 20th Century Fox. The game is expected to come out before the first Avatar sequel drops sometime in 2018, and the Avatar mobile game that will combine the characters and environments from the film franchise with new gameplay features. According to the game developer, this will be its biggest release ever.
“We develop games that people return to and play for years, and the ‘Avatar’ game will deliver new and unexpected thrills to gamers for the foreseeable future,” Kabam COO Kent Wakeford said. “James Cameron and the ‘Avatar’ franchise are synonymous with groundbreaking technology and pushing the envelope. We plan to live up to those standards by creating the best AAA massively multiplayer mobile game possible for the franchise.”
Jon Landau, a producer for Avatar and COO of Lightstorm Entertainment, had this to say about the whole project:
“Kabam has an excellent reputation for building compelling mobile games that explore detailed worlds, which makes them an ideal partner for our franchise. The world of Pandora is massive, far beyond what we are able to include in our feature films, and we think fans will be excited by the level of additional depth and detail that they will be able to experience in this game.”
The Avatar Mobile Game Will Evolve
Kabam has a lot of experience in the mobile game market, and has produced a variety of hits, such as Marvel: Contest of Champions and Star Wars: Uprising, so this shouldn’t be a difficult task for them.
One really cool detail about that game is that it will be updated and continue to change following the launch of each of the four planned Avatar sequels, currently planned for December 2018, 2020, 2022, and 2023
So, who’s going to be loading the Avatar mobile game up once it becomes available?
