On Twitter today, Bethesda announced an Indiana Jones game is in development. In partnership with Lucasfilm Games, Indy’s gaming adventure will be under the care of Machine Games, who revived the Wolfenstein franchise with Wolfenstein: The New Order. There is a very short teaser video with the familiar theme and whip, but few clues are revealed.
The tweet from Bethesda also warns that “It’ll be some time before we have more to reveal…”, so who knows when this one is really coming. I’m hoping it’s not being announced years from release, because the publisher has announced games six months before release in the past. It’s a trend that I hope catches on.
With another Indiana Jones movie coming (and after Crystal Skull, why wouldn’t you be excited?), this could be more marketing tie in than game. Either way, we won’t see more for a while.
A new Indiana Jones game with an original story is in development from our studio, @MachineGames, and will be executive produced by Todd Howard, in collaboration with @LucasfilmGames. It’ll be some time before we have more to reveal, but we’re very excited to share today’s news!

Jason became terminally addicted to videogames after receiving the NES at an early age. This addiction grew to include PC gaming and was cemented with the launch of the PS2. From then on, he was afflicted with epic RPGs, tense shooters, and deep strategy games, never becoming skillful, but never able to quit. He continues to play games (poorly) and share his passion for them to anyone willing to listen.
