Indiana Jones Game From Bethesda May Not Be Xbox Exclusive
The Indiana Jones game in development at Bethesda may not be an Xbox exclusive, according to a new report. Jez Corden, who is often the one to break Xbox-related news prior to official announcements, mentioned this during the The Xbox Two podcast.
According to Corden, Indiana Jones will be a multiplatform release, and he claims that he is certain of this. The Indiana Jones game from Bethesda is in development at MachineGames, and will likely target other platforms besides Xbox and Windows.
Corden didn’t share many further details on the matter, but he seemed confident about what he stated. Phil Spencer had previously discussed around the time of the Bethesda acquisition that not all of the studio’s games would be exclusive to Xbox and PC. The console maker is evaluating the exclusivity of Bethesda’s games on a case-by-case basis.
While bigger IPs such as Starfield and probably the next Elder Scrolls game will remain exclusive to Xbox and PC, games in need of a wider audience for success will likely see the light of day across multiple platforms, including PlayStation and possibly Nintendo. Indiana Jones appears to be one such game from Bethesda.
The upcoming Indiana Jones game was announced with a teaser trailer that was full of enticing indications about where the game may take place. It showed a passport, a hat, and a whip, among other things. Even more fascinating is the presence of what looks to be a plane ticket to Rome and the year date 1937. This date sets the events of Raiders of the Lost Ark and Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade in the franchise’s history. The game may involve Italian fascist leader Benito Mussolini based on the era and location. In addition, the notes on the desk hint to the involvement of the Vatican and the US government.
