The adaptation hasn’t been canceled just yet.
Even with the monumental rise of the Marvel brand in theaters, the Avengers weren’t strong enough to take down one foe. I’m not talking Thanos, I’m talking James Cameron. His film, Avatar, remains the highest grossing film of all time and was, for a time, a bit of a cultural phenomena. It’s since died down and with the film’s sequels seemingly being pushed back further and further, who knows when we’ll see them. You may not remember (and who could blame you if you didn’t at this point), but there was also a big budget game announced based on the film being developed by Ubisoft. And it’s still coming, apparently.
The official Avatar Twitter account took a question from someone who wanted to know if the game was still being made. After a long time of radio silence, a lot of people were wondering. But they confirmed that it was still coming, though not much else.
To be fair to Ubisoft, they did say not to expect the game until at least the 2021 fiscal year (which would be after April 1st 2020), but that also was over a year ago itself and since then the name Avatar hasn’t even been mentioned. But apparently it’s just like the film’s sequels: it’s just going to take some time. At least we know it hasn’t been canceled.
Still being developed! https://t.co/vdWvzyNZEQ
