With the recent Indiana Jones movie, we thought that was the end of Doctor Jones’ adventures. But, a recent interview revealed that Bethesda is still making their intended game based on the franchise.

During an Esquire interview focusing on Starfield, Todd Howard made a brief mention of the Indiana Jones game that they originally announced back in January 2021.

Machine Games, the folks behind the modern Wolfenstein games, is spearheading development. Set during the high point of Jones’ career as an adventurer, the game got a tiny teaser trailer when it was announced and then has been radio silent ever since.

During the Esquire interview that came out today, at the end, Howard teased the AAA Indy game a bit more. The interview mentions all of the projects that they’re currently working on, such as Elder Scrolls 6 and the Fallout TV show.

“I am a giant Indiana Jones fan. It can be brought to video games in a unique way,” Howard told Esquire.

He remained cryptic about the game as a final tease as the interviewer was heading out. “The game”, he continues, ”is obviously: you’re exploring stuff. It’s about him. So if you’re playing the game, how do you feel that you are indeed playing versus just watching?”

As the interviewer was leaving, he smiled and said “We’ll talk next year”.

Cool. Knowing that the game is still coming is all we need to know. Having it developed by the Wolfenstein guys means that the Nazi-killing adventure is in the best hands possible.

In the meantime, Bethesda is full-steam ahead on Starfield, with it officially launching today. If you have Game Pass, you can grab it right now. Forewarning: It’s a really big download.

If you’re on the fence about getting the game, read our recent review about it. Spoiler alert: Our review was higher than a 7 out of 10.
