Lucasfilm helping bring an Indiana Jones game to life
By Bob Garcia
The company that brought Star Wars to the world has launched a new gaming arm
Indiana Jones 5 is expected to be released sometime in the near future, although losing director Steven Spielberg is going to make things more difficult and has already led to delays.
In the meantime, fans of the archeologist/adventurer won’t have to wait to catch up with their hero on the big screen, as he’s going to be coming to video game consoles soon. A new Indiana Jones game is in the works, and Lucasfilm is going to help make it possible.
Lucasfilm is, of course, the company behind both Star Wars and Indiana Jones, named for director George Lucas. The company has launched a new video game arm, Lucasfilm Games, which is going to work with video game developer Bethesda to create the game. It will be executive produced by Todd Howard of Bethesda and is described as a “wholly original tale set at the height of the career of the famed adventurer.”
Bethesda added in a tweet announcing the new game, “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!”
There haven’t been more details released about the game, but it definitely has some creative minds behind it. Howard is behind Doom Eternal, Wolfenstein: Youngblood, The Eder Scroll and Fallout and Lucasfilm doesn’t need to be hyped – the name speaks for itself.
