MachineGames (who developed Wolfenstein: The New Order and Wolfenstein: The New Colossus) and Bethesda appear to be collaborating with Lucasfilm Games to develop an independent Indiana Jones game, and Bethesda Game Studios director Todd Howard will be its executive producer.
Bethesda tweeted: “A new Indiana Jones game with an original story is in development from our studio, @MachineGames, and will be executive produced by Todd Howard, in collaboration with @LucasfilmGames. It’ll be some time before we have more to reveal, but we’re very excited to share today’s news!”.
Bethesda’s tweet included a video featuring the word MachineGames, the Lucasfilm Games logo, the famous hat, and the whip. As explained by one publication StarWars.com that the thrill “may carry some evidence.”
The release date or platforms on which the game will be available were not announced yet at the time of writing, but one thing is clear that MachineGames will have a lot of ideas on how to send Indiana to the Nazis.
The return of the Lucasfilm Games brand was announced yesterday, which seems to cover several games developed by different developers in the Star Wars universe. Lucasfilm Games became the official identity of all the games developed at Lucasfilm.
