Unexpected news, but also very interesting. MachineGames, the creators of Wolfenstein and part of Bethesda are going to develop an Indiana Jones game. This was confirmed on Twitter by Bethesda. The game is at an early stage of development and will be long in coming.
MachineGames to play Indiana Jones
LucasArts chose veteran studio MachineGames, which has a 12-year history and more than 120 employees. Development will in principle be multiplayer because the agreement between LucasArts and Bethesda predated Microsoft’s acquisition of the company.
The Upsala team will switch genders, focusing on the FPS (First Person Shooter) to get into a different perspective. This team will embody the most intrepid adventurer in cinema, masterfully played by Harrison Ford. It will now be necessary to see if this study can work on two projects at the same time or if they focus only on this one.

As various sources have already indicated, it could go straight to Game Pass and it could even have temporary exclusives if Microsoft negotiates it. But, the interesting part of this is the game. We will have time to discuss the future of this game.
In addition, the authorities must first accept Microsoft’s offer to buy Zenimax Media. During this time anything can happen, including the ban on the sale for monopoly concerns.
