"A new Indiana Jones game with an original story is in development from our studio, MachineGames," Bethesda wrote in a brief announcement "It 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!"
The original teaser trailer didn't give very much away, although it looks like the game will be set in and around Rome in 1937. That puts it right after the end of the original trilogy. Check it out below:
We're still a pretty long way away from this new Indie adventure seeing the light of day, which means there's an awful lot we still don't know. However, it does look as if this whip-cracking romp will be yet another Xbox console exclusive. Sorry, PlayStation fans.
This probably won't come as a huge surprise to anyone. Bethesda got scooped up Microsoft last year, and a number of big releases that might previously have been multiplatform have since been confirmed as Xbox exclusives. Starfield definitely won't be coming to PlayStation, for example, and it certainly sounds like The Elder Scrolls VI doesn't have much of a chance either. Why would Indiana Jones be any different?
According to reliable Xbox insider Shpeshal Nick, it won't be. Revealing the information on Twitter, he confirmed he'd go into more detail on the game's exclusivity as part of an upcoming episode of his Rumour Mill podcast.
Take this with a pinch of salt until we hear anything official, but don't be shocked if/when this turns out to be true. Microsoft didn't pay close to $8 billion to share with Sony, after all.
