There’s an extremely brief nothing of a teaser in the article that was tweeted out by Bethesda. I really hope that MachineGames doesn’t have horrifying labor practices or something else going on, because at the moment I very much appreciate their dedication to nazi eradication.
I really want them to finish the New Order pseudo-trilogy but I appreciate their dedication to the brand. I hope Bethesda’s acquisition by Microsoft doesn’t sand any of the edges off of the MachineGames marketing. Having E3 presenters saying “F*** Nazis” is the kind of thing E3 should do a lot more often.
Licensed games are back and all our old favorite gaming franchises are being sacrificed on mammon’s alter to resurrect them, baybee! Hell yeah!
I wonder how they’ll handle the stuff that isn’t punching Nazis, though. I think Uncharted 4 and Shadow of the Tomb Raider show that there’s certain limitations to this genre and I wonder how MachineGames is going to address that
I’d play the Reverse Indiana Jones game about stealing artifacts from museums and returning them to where they came from.
People smarter than me have analyzed the brief teaser and it appears to be a map of the Vatican so… as a lapsed catholic fuck my shit all the way up.
While it makes sense to assume it would be that kind of game I really hope that it isn’t. Like, some kind of hybrid of Fallout with MachineGames gunplay would be preferable to me. Give me a limited open world Indiana Jones FPSRPG hybrid over Uncharted: Also-ran 32 or whatever.
It does seem like a good idea to avoid the existential horror of an Indy game getting called an “Uncharted clone,” for sure
Colonial loot fantasy aside, I wonder what the odds are of a) Harrison Ford VA’s for a video game, b) VA imitates Ford c) We get a New Character in the Indiana Cinematic Universe? I wouldn’t want to be the producer juggling those particular snakes.
It’s gonna be Troy Baker and we’re all gonna like it because that’s what our options are now lol
I’d be surprised if it’s a different character because at that point why even make an Indiana Jones game? It’s not like there are a ton of side characters to get attached to.
Look, just let me yank a gun from a nazi’s hands with a whip, and then let me shoot them with it. You’re already at 7/10 right there.
Surprisingly, I don’t believe that any of the Wolfenstein games have either Troy or Nolan. Machinegames has done shockingly well in their voice casting.
Good LORD, I hope not. I’m so damn sick of hearing Baker’s voice, AND I’m kinda tired of him generally!
So Nolan North imitating Nathan Drake imitating Harrison Ford is out?
One of these days, someone’s going to hire John Boyega to do a video game and it’s going to rule.
This is an Indiana Jones game so hopefully they just reuse the Richard Spencer being punched out ad spot from New Colossus.
What’s Shia LaBeouf been up to lately?
I do hope this is more along the lines of Rise of the Tomb Raider than Uncharted. Also please please please please be a game that has good use of vertical space.

I really hope that they’re spinning up a new team for this, and leaving the original team on Wolf 3. Youngblood wrote a pretty big check with its ending, and I’m dying to see them cash it.
