Avatar: Frontiers of Pandora isn’t coming until after March 2023

Ubisoft has delayed Avatar: Frontiers of Pandora to the fiscal year 2023. It will now launch sometime after March 31, 2023.

“We are committed to delivering a cutting-edge immersive experience that takes full advantage of next-gen technology, as this amazing global entertainment brand represents a major multiyear opportunity for Ubisoft,” the company said on a recent earnings call.

Ubisoft continues, saying; “While this additional development time is a reflection of the current ongoing constraints on productions across the industry, we are hard at work to design the most efficient working conditions to ensure both flexibility for our teams, as well as strong productivity, while delivering the best experiences to players.”

Ubisoft says that it will release a smaller, unannounced premium game in 2023-24 that was also originally scheduled to launch between 2022-23. The company didn’t reveal what it was, but the most likely candidate would be the Prince of Persia remake.

During the call, Ubisoft also mentioned that Roller Champions is performing better than Hyperscape, which was Ubisoft’s battle royal egame that had its servers shut down earlier this year.

Kotaku’s Ethan Gach says that a producer from another major upcoming game was recently pulled away in order to help out with Avatar: Frontiers of Pandora. Reportedly, some of the game’s more unique or interesting features may have gotten cut as production continued.

The game’s developer, Ubisoft Massive, first announced the game in 2017. Ubisoft then revealed in an investor call last year that it was slated to release between April 2022 and March 2023. At E3 2021, it was set for a 2022 launch, which it won’t be making now.

Avatar: Frontiers of Pandora will release on PC, PS5, Xbox Series X/S, Amazon Luna, and Google Stadia.

Bioware’s next game isn’t coming until at least spring 2018
mass effect andromeda romance relationship guide

Bioware's next game isn't set to arrive until some point in "fiscal year 2019," which means the earliest it will debut is April next year. That does give the Dragon Age developer a lot of wiggle room though, as the slated time stretches all the way until March 2019.

Even though Bioware only just released Mass Effect Andromeda in March 2017, during an earnings call earlier this year, an executive at Bioware's parent company, EA, revealed that a new game was in the works and planned for an early-2018 release. However, just a few months on and that launch date has been pushed back by as much as a year.

Ubisoft has traditionally been one of the biggest supporters of Nintendo's new hardware, launching multiple games on both the 3DS and Wii U, and it appears that the company will remain just as bullish when the NX is released next year.

CEO Yves Guillemot called the NX a "fantastic machine" and "really Nintendo" during a presentation attended by GameSpot, and that the company is particularly interested in "disruptions" in the gaming space.

pokemon go plus wearable delay news header

Pokémon Go players, and fans of having some charge in their phone battery, will be disappointed to learn the Pokémon Go Plus wearable has been delayed. Instead of launching in July, it will now be ready to adorn wrists in September. The news comes from Nintendo of America’s official Twitter account, but no reason for the delay has been offered, and because no exactly date has been given, the wait for release may extend to two months from now.

We’ll go ahead and assume you’re aware of Pokémon Go, the mobile gaming phenomenon that has captured worldwide attention since its release, but you may not be aware of the Pokémon Go Plus. It’s a Bluetooth accessory for Pokémon Go players to wear, that vibrates and lights up an LED to alert you of a nearby Pokémon or Pokéstop. The idea is to lessen the need to stare at your smartphone, meaning fewer angry pedestrians, fewer fatal accidents, and more battery life for your phone.
