Yesterday, when Lucasfilm Games announced that the new Indiana Jones game came from the German headquarters: New Order developer MachineGames, the gaming industry was surprised. In addition to telling the original story, almost no information about the game was revealed, but fans quickly took out a magnifying glass and began to study the first trailer for the game, and they found something interesting. You can view the HD trailer trailer below.
All kinds of historical monuments are everywhere on Indy’s desk, but the most telling thing is the 1937 Rome ticket and the Vatican map.
I know you won’t read much from the Indiana Jones game trailer, but I will go anyway. According to the ticket, typewriter and map of the Vatican, it seems that Indy will go to Rome in 1937. It will place the game after the Ark and Temple, but before the Crusades. pic.twitter.com/KLVMQbzPSl

In 1937, shortly after the Raiders of the Lost Ark attack, the new Indiana Jones game was here, so this is the Golden Age Indy we are dealing with. 1937 was also the year Mussolini announced an alliance with Hitler’s Germany, so yes, if there is any doubt, Indy will slam the Nazis in any investigations conducted by the Nazis against him. Tickets for maps of Rome and the Vatican suggest that the exploration may involve some mystery of the Da Vinci code style, and there may be another attempt to collect some religious relics. In other words, this is becoming a classic Indiana Jones story-there are no aliens, Shia LaBeouf or any other weird characters.
In related news, Pete Hines, Bethesda’s vice president of marketing, assured fans that Todd Howard was playing in the new “Indiana Jones” game Serving as a producer in “StarCraft” and “The Elder Scrolls 6” will not distract his work…
Todd is currently the EP for many BGS and other projects (such as the Fallout TV show). His main focus remains to direct the upcoming Starfield and TES6 games, which are not affected by the current news.

The release date and platform of the Indiana Jones game has not yet been determined. In other words, according to insiders, although Microsoft now owns MachineGames, the game is unlikely to be exclusive to Xbox.
