Kabam, Lightstorm Partner to Create Avatar Mobile Game

The game will be designed to "re-immerse" fans into the Avatar universe before the release of Avatar 2 in theaters.

Mobile game developer Kabam partnered with Lightstorm Entertainment and 20th Century Fox to create a mobile game set in the world of James Cameron‘s Avatar. The game will be designed to “re-immerse” fans into the Avatar universe before the release of Avatar 2 in theaters.

Few details were revealed about the game, although Kabam described it as a “AAA massively multiplayer mobile strategy game.” The experience will feature characters and environments from the Avatar films.

Once the game is launched, Kabam said it will update the title as each of the four planned Avatar film sequels are released. As of this writing, Avatar 2 is scheduled to be released in theaters in December 2018.

In a statement, Mike Verdu, president of studios and chief creative officer of Kabam, commented:

Much like the Avatar films, this mobile game will bring a brand new experience to players everywhere. Phones and tablets will become high-fidelity windows into a living, breathing, interactive world of stunning beauty. The company has put forward one of the largest development budgets in mobile gaming history and assigned some of its top talent. The final product is going to be amazing.
