Bethesda has announced a new Indiana Jones game from MachineGames, the studio behind the modern-day Wolfenstein series.
The short teaser trailer below showcases the logos of Bethesda, MachineGames, and the recently renamed Lucasfilm Games (as of yesterday). It also features some of Indy’s iconography, such as his hat and whip.

Beyond digital Lego adventures, it has been years since we had a real Indiana Jones game. 2009 Indiana Jones and the Staff of Kings for Wii, PlayStation 2 and PSP was the last major series. Bethesda Game Studios Director and Executive Producer Todd Howard (best known for the Elder Scrolls RPG series) will executive produce this new game.
MachineGames did a great job with the Wolfenstein series, which already has an Indiana Jones flavor with its focus on taking out the Nazis. The studio should be perfect for the Indie world.
Microsoft acquired Bethesda last year for $ 7.5 billion. We don’t know if this Indy game will be Xbox exclusive, but it’s likely.
Disney is working on the fifth Indiana Jones film, which will be released on July 29, 2022.
