Lucasfilm Games announced in January 2021 that Wolfenstein studio MachineGames had won the privilege of developing a new title centered around one of Harrison Ford’s most iconic roles, Indiana Jones. Windows Central’s Jez Corden has now claimed in a recent episode of the Xbox Two Podcast that this game will not be exclusive to Xbox and PC platforms despite Microsoft’s $7.5 billion acquisition of Bethesda, MachineGames’ parent company, which successfully closed in March last year. Rand al Thor, Corden’s co-host, mentioned during the stream that “we don’t know if it’s exclusive,” but Corden was quick to correct him, confidently stating that “it isn’t.” MachineGames’ take on Indiana Jones is still a big mystery, but it is being executive produced by Fallout, Elder Scrolls, and Starfield director Todd Howard. The game will also tell a brand-new story set at the height of Indy’s illustrious career.

In major news for fans of the cinematic icon, Lucasfilm Games announced […] that a new Indiana Jones game will be swinging our way, being developed by the award-winning studio MachineGames and executive produced by game industry icon Todd Howard of Bethesda Games Studios. The game will tell a wholly original, standalone tale set at the height of the career of the famed adventurer.
