In a post on Polygon, Ubisoft and Lightstorm Entertainment announced they are joining together to bring an AAA video game title based on James Cameron’s Avatar movie series. The Avatar-inspired game will be developed by Massive Entertainment and feature Tom Clancy’s The Division Snowdrop game engine.
