While Bethesda has not announced any plans to release its upcoming Indiana Jones game on anything other than Xbox, a new report claims that the publisher may be open to the idea of putting the game on other platforms. According to sources close to the project, Bethesda is currently in talks with multiple publishers about the possibility of releasing the game on PlayStation, Nintendo Switch, and PC. While it’s unclear if any deal has been reached, it’s possible that we could see the game appear on multiple platforms when it launches. Regardless of where it ends up, Bethesda’s Indiana Jones game is shaping up to be one of the most anticipated releases of next year.
On the Xbox Two podcast, Jez Corden of Windows Central said that he’d heard from a reliable source about a year ago that the upcoming game wouldn’t be exclusive to Xbox, despite being developed by the now Microsoft-owned Machine Games. This would be a huge coup for Microsoft if they could get their hands on an exclusive game like this, but it seems that their plans may have been thwarted. The game is set to release in 2020, so we’ll see if anything changes between now and then. In the meantime, Microsoft should focus on developing its own exclusive games to make up for this potential loss.
While discussing the upcoming Indiana Jones game on The Late Late Show, Corden’s co-host Rand al Thor revealed that he didn’t know if the game would be exclusive to any one platform. Corden replied that, as far as he knew, the game wouldn’t be exclusive and that this information was from a while ago so things may have changed. This means that, as of now, there’s a possibility that the game could be released on multiple platforms instead of being exclusive to just one. However, until official word is released by the developers, it’s impossible to say for sure. Whether it’s exclusive or not, fans of Indiana Jones are sure to be excited for the long-awaited return of the beloved character.
MachineGames’ Indiana Jones, which was announced early last year, is being worked on in collaboration with the newly reformed Lucasfilm Games. According to an interview with Kotaku UK, “It’s been a dream of ours for years to make an Indiana Jones game, and we’re so thrilled to be working on it in collaboration with Lucasfilm Games.” The game will be a “whole new story” set somewhere in the post-World War II era that will focus on “the dark side of the pulp adventures” that defined the character. It sounds like MachineGames is going for a more realistic and modern take on the character than what we’ve seen before, which is definitely exciting. We can’t wait to see what they come up with.
Bethesda’s new Indiana Jones game will be set during the adventurer’s prime years and will be helmed by Elder Scrolls and Fallout director Todd Howard. Not much is known about the plot as of yet, but Bethesda has said that it will be a standalone story. Given Howard’s experience with open-world games, it is likely that the Indiana Jones game will also be set in a large sandbox environment. Fans of both Elder Scrolls and Fallout will no doubt be excited to see what Howard does with the iconic character. With any luck, we’ll learn more about the game in the near future.
MachineGames, the studio behind the popular Wolfenstein franchise, has announced that they are working on a brand new Indiana Jones game. In a statement, the studio said that they are “huge fans of the franchise” and that it is a “tremendous honor” to be creating a new game with an original story. No other details about the game have been released yet, but it is sure to be one of the most highly anticipated titles in development. Stay tuned for more information as it is revealed.
