For roughly half a decade, Xbox players were aware of a new Indiana Jones game coming from Wolfenstein developer MachineGames. The bigger question, even in post-Bethesda acquisition, was if it would be exclusive to Xbox. With such a major property being unique to Xbox would be a major sell for the platform, many did not believe it to be the case. Even at one point insiders told it was to ship on different systems.

However, things began to reshape with internal documents saying otherwise for the Indiana Jones title. Even more, it was also aimed to launch this year, one report says. As for the game itself, players were also eager to see what MachineGames had in-store for its take on the classic Lucasfilm property. In a separate leak, the title was revealed to be ‘Indiana Jones and the Great Circle’ which did fall in line with the series.

At the Xbox-hosted Developer_Direct, MachineGames offered the first gameplay trailer and shared that Indiana Jones and the Great Circle is coming later in 2024. You can watch the trailer in the video below:

“Set between ‘Raiders of the Lost Ark’ and ‘The Last Crusade’, Indiana Jones and The Great Circle is a first-person, single-player adventure that will take you all over the world, uncovering clues and solving an ancient mystery. Become the adventurer in a race against sinister forces. Your journeys will take you from the hallowed halls of the Vatican and the arid deserts of Egypt to the lush and sunken temples of Sukhothai and the frigid peaks of the Himalayas.”

The description from MachineGames reads. “From their approach to crafting unique and believable stories and characters, to their over-the-top and unforgettable set pieces, MachineGames is the perfect studio to bring Indiana Jones to modern gaming.” The biggest game changer is the decision to split the perspective of the game with both first & third-person segments when engaging in the world.

“Since we are doing this mostly in first-person, you have the chance to truly become Indy. First-person makes you part of this world – allowing you to explore and experience things more intimately,” design director Jens Andersson says. “What will you do when you’re dropped into this adventure with your wits and your whip? The world of Indiana Jones is a world with mysteries around every corner, where you’re racing against the clock and outsmarting your enemies as you hunt down artifacts.”
