In a surprise announcement, Bethesda today revealed that a new Indiana Jones game is incoming from one of its studios, specifically MachineGames. The project comes as a collaboration between Bethesda and the newly reborn Lucasfilm Games banner that was announced yesterday.
The Indiana Jones game is described as a "wholly original, standalone tale set at the height of the career of the famed adventurer." It's unclear if Harrison Ford's likeness will be used here, or go another route. Bethesda Game Studio's Todd Howard is helming the project as the executive producer. Check out the cryptic teaser for the game below, which is said to have hidden hints.
For those not familiar, MachineGames is known for its modern Wolfenstein series of shooters that has had two mainline entries and several standalone side storylines, with the most recent being Wolfenstein: Youngblood from 2019.
It sounds like the collaboration is still in its early stages, as the announcement says "It'll be some time before we have more to reveal." Also, considering Microsoft will soon be finalizing the acqusition of Bethesda parent company ZeniMax Media, the Indiana Jones project may be an Xbox and PC platform exclusive when it is finally ready to ship.
