Exclusive: LucasArts still working on Indiana Jones for PS3

Slipping into the shadows of such titles as Star Wars: The Force Unleashed and Fracture, many people have forgotten about one of LucasArts' biggest projects, Indiana Jones.

With no word on the title's development since 2006, gamers have forgotten about the game or figured it was indefinitely shelved. However, speaking with, LucasArts confirms the title is still in the works with new details soon on the way.

"LucasArts remains absolutely committed to the Indiana Jones franchise," said the LucasArts representative. "While we are aware that fans have been eagerly awaiting additional information on the upcoming game, they can rest assured that details are forthcoming."

For those of you not up to date on the new Indiana Jones title, the game will be utilizing much of the same technology found in Star Wars: The Force Unleashed. This includes Natural Motion's Euphoria Engine, Pixelux's DMM technology and Havok physics. As of right now, there has been no concrete release date given, but we suspect it'll show up in 2009

The story is too old to be commented.

Man, I forgot all about this one.

after flops like fracture and the force unleashed, i wouldnt bet on this one turning out any good.

The reviewers were just a bunch of whiny 40 year old nerds who were upset that this game didn't feel as nostalgic as they thought it would, in terms of the original 3 movies. And how was fracture a flop? I always thought a game had to be hyped to 'flop', didn't know there were actually people who were interested in that game.

@kwicksandz: Force Unleashed actually sold more than 1m as far as I know, and it wasn't flop.


As you can see it here, it sold about 1m only for xbox360 and PS3 and those are sale figures for September and only in US.

It's funny how people call flops games that they don't like so please, shove your "flop" deep in your a** and think or at least do a 5 second research before posting such nonsense.

Back on topic: Another game with Euphoria, I think I'm gonna take a closer look at this game since the engine is awesome, but wasn't at it's best in Force Unleashed. Buggies!

Love Indianna Jones!
Hated the new one though. It lacked the old Indy charm and had too much CGI.
Hope the game turns out good.

That CGI looked amazing on blu ray especially the ending. I agree though it did lack what earlier ones had. I think it was missing a couple pinches of grand adventure and legendary treasures.

It was the first blu ray movie I ever watched so....I was amazed at the quality of picture.

lucas arts is probably feeling a bit outgunned with the way uncharted turned out.

Just another game to add to Sony's arsenal next year. Im gonna have so much problems trying to buy all the games I want this year, let alone all of Sony's AAA games next year.
