This is pretty exciting news for fans Indiana Jones fans!
Bethesda (the publisher behind massive hits like Elder Scrolls & Fallout) announced today that their next big project is a new Indiana Jones game. It will “tell a wholly original, standalone tale set at the height of the career of the famed adventurer.” You can check out the brief teaser trailer below.

No details were announced regarding a release date or what consoles it will be coming to, but if you’d want anyone adapting a classic franchise such as Indiana Jones into a video game, it’d be these guys. On Bethesda’s website, a post including the teaser mentions that Todd Howard “is a lifelong Indy fan, and has been trying for over a decade to make this game,” according to Pete Hines, SVP of Global Marketing. “He’s beyond excited to work with the award-winning MachineGames team, a perfect fit for Indy.”
The last Indiana Jones game we got was Lego Indiana Jones 2, which released back in 2009. I think we’re about due for a proper Indy adventure.
I just hope for his sake, there are no snakes in this one.
