Bethesda recently gave an update on the progress of Raiders of the Lost Ark, stating that the team is halfway through the development process. That’s certainly encouraging news for fans, since much of the game hasn’t been seen since it was teased more than two years ago. For those curious about the upcoming adventure starring everyone’s favorite treasure hunter, it seems like more news might not be far away.
Howard spoke at length about the development of Starfield and Esquire, but when asked about MachineGames’ Raiders of the Lost Ark game, he coyly said he would share more information next year. Howard didn’t reveal much about the upcoming game, other than to share that the game will of course feature exploration, and that he believes stories can be brought to video games in “unique ways.” Likewise, there hasn’t been much information about the project since Bethesda announced it was starting development on Raiders of the Lost Ark in early 2021.

Instead, he just smiled and said, “We’ll talk about it next year.” Many speculated what the failure of Wheel of Fortune would mean for MachineGames’ Indiana Jones game, but Howard’s comments at least indicated that the game still exists and works well.
According to Bethesda’s recent update on the game’s development process, the earliest fans can expect Raiders of the Lost Ark seems to be as early as 2025.

Howard’s recent comments on Raiders of the Lost Ark suggest it will be a mashup of genres, but fans are clearly wanting to know more about how MachineGames’ first-person shooter experience will translate into another Nazi-fighting franchise. With recent films underperforming both with critics and at the box office, fans will now turn their attention to the next big project in the franchise.
Raiders of the Lost Ark is in development for PC and Xbox Series X/S.
