Time to don that hat and whip again. 

Bethesda Softworks made a rather surprising announcement yesterday: an Indiana Jones game is being developed by Machinegames and executive produced by Todd Howard. The announcement came with a new teaser, though it doesn’t reveal much.

Check out the teaser below:

Really, all the teaser tells us that an Indiana Jones game is in the works. In a follow-up tweet to the announcement, Bethesda announced that Todd Howard, game director of Fallout 4 and The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim, will serve as the game’s executive producer. The extent of his involvement is currently unknown, as he’s also busy directing Bethesda’s upcoming sci-fi game Starfield. 

What we do know is that the game will feature an entirely original story, and it will be developed by Machinegames. Machinegames is best known for developing the Wolfenstein reboot series, from Wolfenstein: The New Order to Wolfenstein: Youngblood. They have plenty of experience in designing nazi-slaying simulators, so an Indiana Jones game seems right up their alley. 

The untitled Indiana Jones game comes under the new Lucasfilm Games label. Lucasfilm had previously announced that all upcoming game adaptations of their properties will be released under Lucasfilm Games, this being the first. Technically, the Indiana Jones game could also be an Xbox exclusive, since Microsoft acquired Bethesda and all of its studios last year. It'd be pretty funny if Microsoft's answer to Sony's Uncharted franchise was literally an Indiana Jones game. 

One last Indiana Jones movie is also on the way!
