Todd Howard talks about the upcoming Indiana Jones game

Todd Howard recently gave an update on the (hopefully not too distant future) Indiana Jones game on an episode of the Lex Fridman Podcast. It raised the question of whether the title will have an action-adventure component, to which Howard replied:

“I would just say it’s a mash-up. It’s unique, it’s not consciously one thing, so it does a lot of different things that I and the people at MachineGames wanted to do in one game. So it’s a unique thing.”

In another part of the interview, Howard revealed that he’s a fan of the first Indiana Jones film, Raiders of the Lost Ark. He referred to him as “the best movie of all time” and said that working on a video game in this franchise has always been a dream of his.

He also emphasized that MachineGames “perfectly suited” to develop the upcoming game and praised the storytelling and the way the game is being developed. In the end he even called the game “a definite declaration of love for Indiana Jones and all that goes with it”.

Specific information about a release date or platform has not yet been announced. Since Bethesda was acquired by Microsoft in 2020, it could very well be that it will be an Xbox exclusive game.
