After an absence of 12 years, Indiana Jones will return to video games under the direction of Bethesda, the producer behind series like Doom and Fallout .
Through an announcement on social networks, Bethesda showed a teaser in which it advances a new video game of the explorer Henry Walton, better known as Indiana Jones.

The video game will be developed by Machine Games in collaboration with Lucasfilm Games, the newly formed studio announced by Disney for the production of LucasArts games. The producer of the game will be Todd Howard , who has overseen the games from The Elder Scrolls series until the release of Skyrim in 2011.
Bethesda did not give details about what the game will be about or when it will be available, however, due to the recent acquisition of the producer by Xbox , it is most likely that the game will be marginalized from the PlayStation 5 and the Nintendo Switch, and only It will be available on Xbox consoles and PC through the Xbox Game Pass service.
Also, the return of Indiana Jones to video games occurs at a time when Tomb Raider and Uncharted became the benchmarks of thematic action and adventure titles in which ancient ruins are explored in search of relics. Although the genre has its origins in the forgotten Pitfall series (Atari 2600, 1982), Indiana Jones quickly became a reference of the genre with several releases, although the most recent ( PlayStation 3, 2009 ) were linked to the Lego series produced by Traveller's Such.
It would be amazing if Bethesda, with all the economic push from Xbox, produces a game in the style of Uncharted and Tomb Raider .
