Ubisoft is known for a good number of games. From Tom Clancy's The Division to Watchdogs and now For Honor, all these are but remarkable and impressive. While most will agree that the studio still has its own lapses and faults, it can't be denied that they're among the best in the industry.

For those players who have seen the value and worth the studio offers, know that they're working on another title. But this time around, there's a twist. That's because it'll be based on a very popular film called Avatar.

According The Verge, Ubisoft is set to develop a brand new game that's based on the aforementioned movie by James Cameron. The latter's film was among the critically acclaimed movies of its time. It's basically a sci-fi with a mix of pop culture that was helmed sometime in 2009. So, in a sense, it wouldn't be a surprise if someone from the gaming industry will make a game out of it.

Indeed, this is where Ubisoft is going. The studio's very own Massive Entertainment (which is based in Malmo, Sweden) will take the developing task. The company will be accompanied by Lightbox Entertainment as well as Fox Interactive. The big reveal was made by the video game company during its GDC 2017.

VentureBeat, on the other hand, notes that this upcoming game from Ubisoft will be about exploring the universe of Pandora. Of course, there's a possibility that some twists and whatnots will be applied or added. Add to this the fact that the Snowdrop Engine, which is famous for Tom Clancy's The Division, will be utilized.

The aforementioned engine has helped Ubisoft create a wide variety of games. Heck, it even helps in having a cartoon-style game to a more highly realistic one. Among the creators of the game engine is Bjron Lindberg, who describes it as a significant invention in the history of the company. As of this writing, the Avatar-based game has yet to receive an official release date.
