Xbox Developer MachineGames Opens Up New Studio In Sweden

Wolfenstein developer MachineGames came under Xbox ownership when Microsoft acquired Bethesda in 2021, although we haven't seen the team produce a game of its own since the purchase. Still, we know they're working on a new Indiana Jones game, and they've just opened up a new studio to help that project progress.

As revealed by Gamereactor, the Swedish developer has opened up another studio in its native country, this time in the region of Norrland. Here's a quote from MachineGames on the move, roughly translated from Swedish:

"As a game developer, you're always on the lookout for new talent. Opening a satellite office in northern Sweden gives us the opportunity to recruit from the large number of experienced developers in the region who may not have the opportunity to move to our headquarters in Uppsala."

The opening of this new MachineGames branch has us wondering what else the team may be up to. We haven't seen a mainline Wolfenstein game for more than five years at this stage - could 'Wolf 3' also be in the works? We have no confirmation of that at this stage, so we can only speculate!

Still, we're eager to learn more about Indiana Jones as well. That project was unveiled right around the time Xbox was in the process of buying Bethesda, and we haven't seen the game at all since. Patience, Xbox fans - lots more is to come from the Bethesda teams under Xbox.
