In the beginning of this week, Disney launched its new Lucasfilm Games branding, accompanied by a sizzle reel highlighting current Star Wars titles. Much like Marvel Video games, Lucasfilm Video games will function a label for all future titles primarily based on Lucasfilm IP. Not probably the most thrilling information, nevertheless it hinted at a future involving video games primarily based on Lucasfilm properties developed by studios not owned by EA, the writer which has held the unique rights to make Star Wars video games, to mixed results.
We nonetheless don’t know what Lucasfilm Video games means for future Star Wars video games. However yesterday we bought a different announcement: a brand new Indiana Jones title from Bethesda-owned studio Machine Video games, developer of the current Wolfenstein video games. You’ll be able to watch a short (not notably informative) teaser trailer beneath.

Bethesda shared the sport would have an unique story and be government produced by Todd Howard in collaboration with Lucasfilm Video games however admit that it’ll be a while earlier than they’re in a position to supply extra particulars.
Nonetheless, the information could be very thrilling. Two main online game properties, Tomb Raider and Uncharted, clearly draw inspiration from the long-lasting collection, however we’ve by no means seen a big-budget action-adventure online game starring Indiana Jones himself. Machine Video games is broadly acclaimed for its work on Wolfenstein, so Lucasfilm Video games put the franchise in good arms.
Maybe the largest query is whether or not the Indiana Jones sport might be an Xbox unique since Microsoft just lately acquired Bethesda for a reported $7.5 billion. If Lucasfilm Video games approached Bethesda earlier than the acquisition the contract seemingly specified that the sport will come to each consoles. Lucasfilm Video games hasn’t shared what platforms the sport is being developed for, so we’ll have to attend and see if Indiana Jones might be an Xbox unique or if it should launch on PlayStation, as effectively.
