New Indiana Jones Game Revealed

A post on StarWars.com whips up interest in a new Indiana Jones game that's in the works at Bethesda's Machine Games Studio, the developer behind the revival of the Wolfenstein series. It embeds this tweet from Bethesda that features a cinematic trailer teasing the project. Their write-up says the cryptic trailer may provide some clues about what to expect:
Indiana Jones. We always knew, someday, you’d come walking back through our door.

In major news for fans of the cinematic icon, Lucasfilm Games announced today 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.

While few details surrounding the Indy game have been revealed, Bethesda Softworks released a cryptic teaser that may hold some clues. Take a look for yourself above and follow @LucasfilmGames and @Bethesda for more information on this title in the future.

Welcome back, Indy. It’s been too long.

+1 for Machine Games
-1 for Todd Howard

And for the love of Jeebus, please don't use that old and busted Gamebryo Engine. I don't think I could stomach it again.

Wooohooo gamebyro engine game with microtransactions. Looking forward to that whip DLC
Bethesda were (almost certainly) the first company to add bite sized DLC to a singleplayer only game (Exhibit 1: $2.5 Horse Armor for Oblivion) and it's not like they've scaled down that aspect of their monetization strategy over time.

Where does it say it is a Shooter though? Is that assumption only based on Machine Games Studio pedigree?

When I think "Indiana Jones" as a game, certainly "shooter" doesn't even come to mind. I would imagine either Action Adventure Cinematic /w Occasional Shooty/Whip elements (like Uncharted-style games) or a classic Point-Click Style Mystery/Puzzle game (which would be amazing if it were VR, exploring ancient lost places to recover artifacts).

Uncertain, but given the thought that I feel went into the Wolfenstein games, I'm excited to see almost anything coming from them.
Particularly since I don't think the Wolfenstein games sold very well, so I'm happy to see them still existing.

to Machine Games, who made some of the best shooters of the past decade

Did they do anything besides those Wolfenstein follow ups and that Quake pack (which I never played)? I don’t mean to imply that those were bad or anything, just curious if I missed something.

With all the Tomb Raider and Uncharted games (et al) we've had in recent decades, I'll be curious to see what they come up with that isn't a knockoff of the games that already were - in a number of ways - knockoffs of Indiana Jones themselves.

TR and uncharted are too murdery for me. i'm hoping for something much more exploration oriented. something like The Dig graphic adventure from lucasarts back in the day.
With Todd Howard in the Executive Producer role I'd expect The Adventures of Skyrim Jones and the Empty Open World.

You say that like the modding community wouldn't absolutely LOVE that.

Lol I was moderately hype on reading the news, a modern Indie game could be epic.

Then I saw 'executively produced by Todd Howard'.... well fuck!

Weird collabo between Wolfenstein devs and Todd Howard, but fingers crossed it turns out okay.
