The Avatar MMO (temporary title) is a massively multiplayer online strategy title in development for the Avatar franchise. The game is being developed by Aftershock, in partnership with Lightstorm Entertainment.


James Cameron first announced interest in an Avatar Universe MMO in April of 2011, though at the time he was suggesting it would run on 3D televisions.[1]

Confirmation of the Mobile MMO came over five years later, in a press release from mobile developer Kabam on June 29, 2016. Kabam has its origins in Facebook games of the late 2000s, expanding into Android tie-ins for many film franchises in the early 2010s, including Lord of the Rings and The Hobbit.[2]

Kabam's Vancouver studio was bought by South Korean gaming NetMarble in 2017, Aftershock surfaced as a spin-off from Kabam. In June 2017, the Avatar MMO was confirmed to still be in development by Aftershock, which had been acquired by FoxNext, 20th Century Fox's location-based entertainment, video game, and virtual reality division that is also involved in Avatar: Discover Pandora.[3][4]

Gameplay Edit

While details are currently scarce, Kabam COO Kent Wakeford stated "James Cameron and the Avatar franchise are synonymous with groundbreaking technology and pushing the envelope. We plan to live up to those standards by creating the best AAA massively multiplayer mobile game possible for the franchise." The studio promised frequent updates after the game's release. The original announcement said that characters and environments from the films would be included and that some game updates would directly tie into sequel releases.[5]
