Bethesda said:
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 @LucasfilmGames. It'll be some time before we have more to reveal, but we’re very excited to share today’s news!

Indiana Jones‘ reboots have not gone that well in film, and it’s very well covered in video games. Just get on with Elder Scrolls already.

“Executive produced by Todd Howard”

See that boulder? You can climb it!

Can’t wait to see more Todd memes from this announcement :lol:

Tomb raider / uncharted have already battered this to death tbh.
Don't MachineGames and Todd Howard tend to do first person shooters? Maybe they'll bring new life into the genre by being first person.

Machine Games did the new Wolfenstein games. I really enjoyed them although the 2nd wasn’t quite as good

When did Bethesda start getting a bad rep? Some of my favourite games from last couple of gens, Doom reboots, dishonored series , Prey and Wolfenstein is a good list imo

obviously a few duds as well, but I’d be confident this could be good

Please let it be an adventure game. The Fate of Atlantis was soooo good, and really captured a lot of the Indiana Jones spirit and humour.

I’m gonna stick my neck out and say that this will not be a point and click adventure game

It doesnt fill me with confidence if theyre making it. The New Order was okay but every other Wolfenstein they made was shit to me. That Youngblood game looked laughably bad.

I‘d feel more excited if a dev like Rocksteady was making it, and them name dropping Todd as an executive producer means they know they’re going to need a name attached to it to get it hype, even if his involvement is extremely minimal since he’s probably doing Elder Scrolls 6 and Starfield.

No, I know. :D I expect it'll be more like Tomb Raider. But I would love if it were a little mixed: less straight action without thinking, and more adventure-style figuring things out.

Great game, loved that shit even if it was deeply frustrating at times. :D
There were also the three paths? (Was it three? A lot of fighting, little fighting, hybrid?) Some different locations involved as well. I vaguely remember a submarine scene that you only had if you took the more-fighting path...?)

Their own development studio has been shit for years, but they act as publisher for a number of decent to good Zenimax studios. This isn't developed by Bethesda so it has a chance.

If I don't get to hide in a fridge in this game, I'm demanding my money back.
