James Cameron wants more games
Interviewed on X-Play, famed director James Cameron confessed a desire to pursue more game projects in lieu of the time required to bring all of his film ideas to fruition.
Cameron told the show, "I've got a lot of stories, and I don't have enough time to make them all as movies." The Avatar visionary said he is in talks with Ubisoft about the prospect of developing original games.
No doubt the likelihood of future projects rests with Ubisoft's content with the sales of Avatar: The Game on consoles and handhelds. Critically, the game didn't fare well, but film tie-ins tend to sell well.
If Ubisoft and Cameron team up for original games, it wouldn't be the first time a major Hollywood figure dabbled in gaming. Steven Spielberg has long maintained a relationship with EA.
