Bethesda Announces Indiana Jones Game from Wolfenstein Devs
Bethesda has announced they are publishing a new Indiana Jones video game and it will be developed by Wolfenstein studio Machine Games.
The game will also be in collaboration with Bethesda’s Todd Howard and Lucasfilm Games, just 24 hours after the video game licensor was revitalised.
The news was announced on the official Bethesda Twitter page with a short 33-second clip featuring the classic Indiana Jones theme song and the iconic whip.
In a follow-up tweet Bethesda stated: “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. It’ll be some time before we have more to reveal, but we’re very excited to share today’s news!“

There is no information as to when the Indiana Jones game will release, but I’d say it’s likely to be a few years away from release.
However now that Bethesda is owned by Microsoft it will of course release on Xbox Series X|S and PC, but it begs the question, will Indiana Jones release on PS5?
It’s not outside the realms of possibility that it won’t release on PS5, but I reckon it will be a timed exclusive before it arrives on Sony’s console.
There have been a number of Indiana Jones video game adaptations over the years, the best of which is probably the Lego series in my opinion.
However I do have some fond memories of Indiana Jones and The Emperor’s Tomb which was released on PC, PS2 and the OG Xbox in 2003, which was developed by The Collective which made a fun Buffy the Vampire Slayer game in 2002.
