On the heels of yesterday’s unveiling of its “Everything Old Is New Again” rebranding, Lucasfilm Games is now making good on the promise of being the official site for all video games under the Lucasfilm banner. One obviously thinks of Star Wars when you hear Lucasfilm + video games, and you should, but you shouldn’t sleep on properties like Indiana Jones, as Bethesda just showed us.
The games development studio behind iconic and upcoming titles like DOOM Eternal, Elder Scrolls, Fallout, DEATHLOOP, Ghostwire: Tokyo, Wolfenstein and more will be collaboraing with Lucasfilm Games on a new Indy game. Studio director and EP Todd Howard will executive produce the game, an original story that they’ll make along with MachineGames (Wolfenstein: Youngblood). Meanwhile, keep in mind that Microsoft’s recent buyout of Zenimax Media includes both Bethesda and MachineGames in the deal, so this is essentially a Microsoft / Lucasfilm co-production, even if it’s in name only. Does this mean the Indiana Jones movie will be an Xbox / PC exclusive? Probably not, but we’ve got a long road ahead of us before we see anything more concrete from this project. However … the teaser trailer does indeed hold some clues, if Lucasfilm Games’ cheeky copy (still hosted under StarWars.com, sigh) is to be believed:
