A new Indiana Jones game is on the way, as Bethesda joins forces with Lucasfilm Games.
It’s finally time for a new Indiana Jones game to surface, and we couldn’t be more excited. The iconic whip-cracking professor will be making his debut on next-gen consoles sometime in the near future.
Developed by MachineGames, known for its work on the recent Wolfenstein reboots, the untitled Indiana Jones game is the first project announced for the recent rebranding of the Lucasfilm Games studio.
Initially, we believed that new Star Wars games would be on the way, but it seems like Lucasfilm had different plans. Kickstarting its new studio revival, Lucasfilm Games shows off the first Indiana Jones game in 10 years.
New Indiana Jones Game Revealed
The untitled Indiana Jones project will feature an original story, so it’s unlikely that Harrison Ford will be making an appearance. However, we’re still excited to see how Indy looks and plays in the new installment.
What we do know is that the game will take place “at the height of the career of the famed adventurer.” With that in mind, we’re certainly seeing a younger Indiana Jones, as opposed to the older Kingdom of the Crystal Skull Indy, who will feature once more in the upcoming fifth movie in the franchise.
Given that MachineGames’ parent company is ZeniMax Media, this title could actually be an Xbox exclusive. After all, the company was recently acquired alongside Bethesda in a deal with Microsoft.
Bethesda also announced that the Indiana Jones project will be executive produced by Todd Howard himself. According to the studio, it’ll be some time before there’s more to reveal.
Check out the teaser trailer for the upcoming Indiana Jones game below:
This game could be one of the biggest titles to drop on the Xbox Game Pass, should it come to the service. However, it’ll be a while before we learn more details about this exciting reveal.

In the meantime, we’re still waiting on further news about the delayed Halo Infinite. However, new details about Halo Infinite’s Battle Royale mode just leaked.
Maybe by the time this comes out, we really will be able to play it on a Starbucks-themed next-gen console.
