The name of Bethesda's Indiana Jones game might have been revealed

As noted by user X with the nickname Kurakasis last week, Lucasfilm registered several domain names for Indiana Jones and the Great Circle, including one that explicitly indicates it's a game.

It's also mentioned that two years ago, Lucasfilm filed a trademark application for The Great Circle in Europe, listing video games as one of the goods and services intended for use.

The Indiana Jones game was announced in January 2021 and is currently in development at MachineGames, the Swedish team behind the modern versions of Wolfenstein.

This week, Microsoft confirmed that MachineGames will present this action-adventure project during an Xbox and Bethesda presentation on January 18.

"Developer_Direct will showcase more than 10 minutes of gameplay and developer insights, including details about the game's setting and story, how fans will play as Indy, additional details from his next globe-trotting adventure, and the premiere of the first gameplay trailer," states the official announcement.

Although it was initially stated that the game would also be available on PlayStation, it has recently been confirmed that it will be an exclusive for Xbox and PC, with day-one availability on Game Pass, following Microsoft's acquisition of ZeniMax Media, the owner of MachineGames.

Bethesda game director Todd Howard, who also serves as an executive producer and whose favorite film is "Indiana Jones: Raiders of the Lost Ark," has commented on the project's genre: "I can say it's a mix. It's unique, it doesn't limit itself to one direction, encompassing a variety of different elements."
