In a press release, Ubisoft explains that the decision aims to offer a
cutting-edge immersive experience that will take advantage of next-gen console technology.
Avatar: Frontiers of Pandora was to be released later in 2022, alongside the release of the film Avatar : the way of the water (Avatar: The Way of Water), the sequel to James Cameron’s smash hit that inspired the game.
We have also decided to release a smaller unannounced game in 2023-24, originally planned for 2022-23Ubisoft said in the same statement.
Ubisoft also reported slightly better-than-expected revenue for the first quarter, a result attributable to the strong performance of Assassin’s Creed and Rainbow Six Siege.
However, this is a decrease of 9.8% compared to last year.
The group expects to record second-quarter net sales of around 270 million euros ($355 million) and expects operating profit of around 400 million euros ($525 million) in 2022-2023.
Over the past few months, Ubisoft has suffered from delays and a drop in demand from the highs reached earlier during the pandemic. The company also competes with blockbuster titles and free-to-play games.
