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

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!
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!
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.
