Developer MachineGames, most noted for its work on the Wolfenstein franchise and the most recent Quake & Quake 2 Remastered title – is currency occupied with a new effort alongside Lucasfilm Games. In that, it was revealed that the game studio is piecing together a new Indiana Jones game. But the larger question that still remains – where will it be available. No question, PC is still on the table.
But as for consoles, the inquiry still stands with the Zenimax Media acquisition in 2020. Originally, insiders told that the game was planned to be a multiplatform release. Or at least that was initially intended. But according to a newer discovery via an internal email, the game was set to release for multiple platforms. And with Microsoft’s intent revealed to boost Xbox via Bethesda, it does not look likely the game is to release on other consoles.
In terms of what the firm has planned for Indiana Jones still remains in the dark. But according to GameReactor, it is revealed that Machinegames is now branching into another team with a second studio opening in Sundsvall, Sweden. Auto-translated, you can read the statement from executive producer & co-founder Jerk Gustafsson below:
“As a game developer, you’re always on the lookout for new talent. Opening a satellite office in northern Sweden gives us the opportunity to recruit from the large number of experienced developers in the region who may not have the opportunity to move to our headquarters in Uppsala.”
In ties to Bethesda & Lucasfilm Games, Machinegames is not the only team engaging in a licensed project. Revealed at 2023’s The Game Awards, it’s revealed that Arkane Lyon is occupied with the new Marvel’s Blade game. You can read the full report by heading here.
