Indiana Jones comes to next generation consoles

Indiana Jones will be back in 2007 with a new adventure set for next generation consoles.

Indiana Jones will be back in 2007 with a new adventure set for next generation consoles.

When he's not teaching students about archaeology or working on his five-o'clock shadow, Indiana Jones is buckling swashes, trotting globes, and all other manner of derring-do. According to a statement from LucasArts, come 2007, he'll be back doing it on the "next generation of gaming consoles".

Developed internally by LucasArts, the yet-to-be-named Indiana Jones game promises the expected action and adventure in every nook and cranny of the world. Don't expect to run into to the same pea-brained Nazis, as LucasArts is promising "a noticeable evolution in physics and artificial intelligence".

Indy has previously adventured in games, including 2003's Indiana Jones and the Emperor's Tomb and 1999's Indiana Jones and the Infernal Machine.

This new game looks to be just one aspect in a full-on Indy resurgence, with Harrison Ford reportedly signed on to star in a fourth film in the franchise. The project will be written by George Lucas and directed by Steven Spielberg, and it's tentatively due out sometime next year
