Machine Games, the developers behind Wolfenstein, are working on a new Indiana Jones game and is being published by Bethesda. The announcement came by way of a teaser video posted by Bethesda. The game will tell an original, standalone story which focuses on Indiana Jones himself.
No further details about the game were given, with Bethesda stating the studio will be quite for some time before more details will be released. You can check out the teaser below:
“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,” Bethesda said in its announcement. “It’ll be some time before we have more to reveal, but we’re very excited to share today’s news!”
In their own statement, Disney added that, “The game will tell a wholly original, standalone tale set at the height of the famed adventurer.” The announcement come just days after Disney announced Lucasfilm Games, the new catch-all name for Disney’s efforts within the gaming universe through Lucasfilm properties.
This new Indiana Jones game will be owned by Microsoft, as the company recently revealed their intentions to purchase Bethesda and parent company ZeniMax for $7.5 billion. Since development on the Indiana Jones game is just beginning, there is no word yet if it will be an Xbox exclusive.
