Bethesda's Indiana Jones Game Reportedly Set To Launch This Year

Yesterday's Developer Direct announcement brought the exciting news that Bethesda will finally be lifting the lid on Indiana Jones soon - with a world premiere gameplay trailer confirmed for next week. The game's appearance at Dev Direct has fans wondering about the projected release date, and a new report sheds some light on Bethesda's plans.

According to Insider Gaming, Indiana Jones is on-track for a 2024 launch - which makes sense given all of last year's Developer Direct titles released in 2023. The site claims that "sources close to the game" have confirmed the launch window, but it "remains to be seen" if it can keep to a 2024 date.

Alongside IG's report, another new comment from the ResetEra message boards also hints at a nearby release window. Developer and industry insider 'Shinobi602' responded to a fan — who wondered whether to be shocked by Indy's involvement — with the comment "If you knew when it's coming out, not really". Both of these tidbits of info are unconfirmed for now, but it's all sounding like Indiana Jones is at least aiming for 2024.

What we do know for sure is that January's developer-led event will bring us lots of new info on Indy. MachineGames will showcase "more than 10 minutes of game and developer insights, including details about the game’s setting and story, how fans will actually play as Indy, additional details from his next globe-trotting adventure, and the premiere of the first gameplay trailer."

As for what else will be present at the show, you can expect Xbox to dedicate plenty of time to Ara: History Untold, Hellblade 2 and Avowed alongside Indiana Jones. Bring on next week!
