Yesterday, the Internet rocked the news that Bethesda and MachineGames under license from Lucasfilm Games are developing a game about Indiana Jones. After that, the Internet began to dig in old interviews and various materials for hints of an already held announcement.
Many drew attention to the September interviews of Todd Howard, Pete Hines, Phil Spencer and Larry Hrieb. Users decided that the closet behind Howard hinted at a game about Indiana Jones, but, as Pete Hines explained, this is just fiction, and the game designer himself is a big fan of films.
I want to clarify the situation. Nobody hinted at anything. Todd has been an Indiana Jones fan all his life. He’s got a lot of cool stuff about the franchise. This isn’t a hidden announcement – he’s just a huge Indiana Jones fan.
Looks like Phil Spencer will remain the king of hidden announcements from his bookshelf.
