Ubisoft pushes release of its Avatar game

French publishing giant Ubisoft has once again pushed its Avatar video game.

The delay came during the company's call with investors and sees the title coming out in its 2022/23 financial year. The project is being developed by Ubisoft's Massive studio, best known for The Division series of military shooters.

Avatar being delayed comes in the wake of the upcoming film sequel, Avatar 2, being delayed until December 2022. It obviously makes sense for a tie-in game to come out alongside the thing it is being adapted from.

Ubisoft was behind an adaptation of the original Avatar back in 2009 for PC, DS, PlayStation 3, Xbox 360 and Wii.

This isn't the only game that Ubisoft has been delayed. The firm pushed back the launches of both Far Cry 6 and Rainbow Six Quarantine until later dates.
