Only recently we talked about the rebirth of the Lucasfilm Games brand that will contain all the chapters inherent to the Star Wars saga on consoles, a choice that apparently does not mean much but that, instead, gives a global and representative image than before it was not so present and marked. About a day after the official announcement, the very first project in which the studio is currently engaged appears. We are not talking about a video game taken from the universe created by George Lucas, but about Indiana Jones, a new project designed for “next-gen” consoles of PS5 and Xbox Series X/S and created by MachineGames in collaboration with the aforementioned software house.
To make the announcement through the social channels was Bethesda, another company incorporated in the Microsoft “package” which will soon become part of the entire ecosystem.
As it was written directly on the tweet, this new adventure will not be linked to any of the existing films, but will be built totally around a new and original story that, at the moment, is still in the making at MachineGames. The entire production will be produced by Todd Howard.
“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 Lucasfilm Games. It’ll be some time before we have more to reveal, but we’re very excited to share today’s news,” can be read from the tweet below.

MachineGames, for those unfamiliar with it, is the software house that gave birth to the last chapter of Wolfenstein and that many hoped were involved in the realization of the third and expected chapter.
The Swedish company, at the moment, has not released any relevant information regarding this new Indiana Jones adventure, and we are sure that in the coming months we will know more. On the other hand, we will have to wait for an official release date or at least a time window, so stay tuned to our site for more information.
