We knew that Wolfenstein developer MachineGames is working on an Indiana Jones video game. But news since its announcement has been minimal. But according to Todd Howard, we might get more information on this mystery game next year.
In an interview with Esquire, Howard did not share much in regards to the upcoming game but teased that he could have more to share down the road. “Howard would talk more about Indiana Jones—I can tell he really wants to—but he’s not allowed,” the article reads. “Instead, as I exit his office, he flashes that smile. ‘We’ll talk next year.'”
The interview also explains how Howard pitched Lucasfilm back in 2009 to make an Indiana Jones game, stating it was on Howard’s “bucket list” to make such a game. Explaining that it “didn’t work out back then, but in the years since,” Disney was interested in the pitch.
Bethesda Softworks announced back in 2021 that it was collaborating with Lucasfilm Games to publish a new game based on the Indiana Jones IP, with MachineGames handling development. Though following its January 2021 announcement, details are slim. We do know that due to the Xbox vs. FTC trial that occurred over the summer, Indiana Jones was originally planned to be released on PS5 until MachineGames and Bethesda Softworks’ parent company, ZeniMax Media, was acquired by Microsoft.
Outside of being an Xbox console exclusive, we know that Todd Howard will serve as the game’s executive producer. In a previous interview, Howard noted that the upcoming Indiana Jones game would be a “mash-up” of different genres.
