As part of today's Ubisoft Forward event for E3 2021, we've just had a surprise confirmation that a new Avatar game - Frontiers of Pandora - is in the works. Having previously released James Cameron's Avatar: The Game back in 2009 through Ubisoft Montreal, this one's being handled by Massive Entertainment.
We don't have a lot of information so far, but here's everything we know so far about this upcoming game.

As per Ubisoft, here's what Avatar: Frontiers of Pandora is all about:
In this new, standalone story, play as a Na’vi and embark on a journey across the Western Frontier, a never-before-seen part of Pandora. Explore a living and reactive world inhabited by unique creatures and new characters, and push back the formidable RDA forces that threaten it.
Avatar: Frontiers of Pandora is planned to release on PlayStation 5, Xbox Series X|S, PC, Google Stadia and Amazon Luna.
With the game being a true next-gen exclusive, we would imagine that the game will retail for £60 RRP or above.
