Bethesda and Machine Games are making an Indiana Jones game

Posted on January 13, 2021

Bethesda has taken to social media this morning to tease the release of an upcoming Indiana Jones game developed by Wolfenstein developer Machine Games. The teaser doesn’t reveal a whole lot of information, but it does contain some pretty iconic imagery including Indiana’s whip and hat and a pretty distinct musical score in the background.

“A new Indiana Jones game with an original story is in development from our studio, Machine Games, and will be executive produced by Todd Howard, in collaboration with Lucasfilm Games. It’ll be some time before we have more to reveal, but we’re very excited to share today’s news!”

Unfortunately, that’s all of the information we have so far, although it’s certainly enough to get the hype train rolling. With Microsoft’s acquisition of Bethesda back in September of last year, it also means that this Indiana Jones game will be a Microsoft property and may well be a console exclusive Xbox release. Perhaps this is Xbox’s answer to Sony’s Uncharted success? Regardless, it’ll be interesting to see more of this game in the future.
