Bethesda’s Indiana Jones Currently Halfway Through Production

Expert Verified By

"They're Doing A Really Great Job"

The Indiana Jones Game was announced as a huge surprise in 2021, with MachineGames, the studio behind Wolfenstein, leading the development of the action-adventure title.

Since then, the developer has not said much about its next project. However, Todd Howard has recently provided a small update in an interview. According to GQ, the game is already halfway through production.

Why it matters: Todd Howard is a massive fan of the Indiana Jones IP and has been trying to create a game about the character for well over a decade.

During the interview, the veteran developer confirmed that MachineGames is making steady progress on the project. He said:

 “They’ve got the whole Nazi killing thing down and they’re doing a really great job.”

Indiana Jones Game is being co-developed by Bethesda Game Studios and MachineGames. For the past few years, the former has had its hands full with Starfield, as the game was in development for eight years.

Additionally, Bethesda Game Studios is looking ahead to The Elder Scrolls 6. However, with Starfield due for release next month, the developer will likely pay greater attention to Indiana Jones.

Given Todd Howard’s excitement about the character, fans can expect plenty of care and attention to detail in the project. Todd Howard has already hinted that the game will be a mashup of various genres.

The first trailer hints at a Roman setting several years after 1937. A report also claimed that the game may feature both 1st and 3rd person gameplay, allowing MachineGames to use its experience from the Wolfenstein IP.

While little else is known about the game, Microsoft’s recent court trials have confirmed that Indiana Jones will not be available on PS5.

The gaming giant had expected as many as 10 million sales for the game on PlayStation but decided to take a huge bet and make it exclusive to Xbox Series S|X and PC, hoping to make up for the difference with Game Pass.

Since the project is around halfway through production, it may take Bethesda and MachineGames a year or two before Indiana Jones is released on the market.

Meanwhile, fans can look forward to Starfield, Todd Howard’s most ambitious project that has been 25 years in the making.
