New Indy game coming based on the 4th film?
Tuesday, August 3, 2004 - Aaron H

An article at gamesradar.com about LucasArts' upcoming game based on Star Wars Episode III: Revenge of the Sith, mentions that LucasArts are also planning a new Indiana Jones game. A game based on Indiana Jones IV!?

Gamesradar: "In addition, LucasArts are also planning a new Indiana Jones game based on the fourth movie in the series, although this isn't likely to be released until 2006."

While this isn't direct confirmation of the movie itself, it does lead to the obvious question... when is the official announcement for our long await film going to take place? Or could it be that gamesradar.com is misinformed? Stay tuned!

The value of Harrison Ford's voice in Indy games
Friday, November 12, 2004 - Gilles V

LucasArts president Jim Ward recently talked with The Hollywood Reporter about the company's future in interactive entertainment. During the conversation, Hollywood Reporter asked an interesting Indy question:

THR: You have also mentioned revitalizing the Indiana Jones intellectual property. Would an Indiana Jones game feature Harrison Ford's voice and likeness?

Jim Ward: We're currently evaluating the value that bringing Hollywood likenesses and voices to the table would bring to Indiana Jones. I'm not convinced that the wholesale studio approach that Electronic Arts undertakes with its James Bond and other Hollywood-licensed games is the way to go. ... With Star Wars and Indiana Jones, people identify with these brands. It might make sense to work with one or two actors from a property on the game front, but we'll see. Certainly, with Indiana Jones, Harrison Ford is Indiana Jones. So something like that might make sense.

LucasArts' Indiana Jones video game survey
Friday, December 24, 2004 - Gilles V

LucasArts has hired a third party, Nielsen Interactive Entertainment, to ask us gamers to tell them what we think about Indiana Jones and the Emperor's Tomb.

Please spend few moments answering their online survey questionnaire and help LucasArts make better games!

This survey proves that LucasArts indeed has "plans" to make at least 1 more Indiana Jones game in the near future. I suspect that they will start working on a new Indy game once the Star Wars: Episode III film and game is finished and released. So we can be looking forward to a very exciting 2005!

So fellow Indiana Jones fans, LucasArts is asking us for feedback on Emperor's Tomb! An opportunity we should not ignore so be sure to pay a visit to their online survey questionnaire.

Merry Christmas everybody!
