Yesterday, Bethesda and Lucasfilm Games surprised us by revealing that a new Indiana Jones game is already in development by MachineGames, the studio that delivered the latest Wolfenstein installments. This announcement also revealed that Todd Howard would be the executive producer of the project, something that worried fans, considering that the director is already in charge of The Elder Scrolls VI, Starfield and other projects. Fortunately, It has been revealed that this will not affect Hodward’s position in other developments.
After the initial information was released yesterday, several fans began asking about how the Indiana Jones game executive producer position could affect Todd Howard’s involvement in other Bethesda titles. Thus, Pete Hines, senior vice president of marketing at the company, revealed that nothing has changed so far.. This was what he commented:
Todd is currently an executive producer on many BGS projects, such as the Fallout TV show. His primary focus remains directing the upcoming Starfield and TES6 games, which are unaffected by today’s news.
Todd is a lifelong Indy fan and has been trying for over a decade to make this game. He is beyond excited to be working with the award-winning team at MachineGames, a perfect fit for Indy. “
