Now, fans reckon they can identify where Jones will start his journey, and in what year.
Towards completion of the teaser we see an airplane ticket to Rome pushing Jones’ desk, dated October 21st 1937. This would place the game chronologically just a year after Raiders of the Lost Ark, and a year before the occasions of Last Crusade.
(Fun fact: Temple of Doom is a prequel to Raiders. No other Indiana Jones movies exist.)
1937 is also when Mussolini was provided with the Sword of Islam, the most Goddamn Indiana Jones sword I’ve ever seen. It ‘d fit the Indiana Jones mould. Last night, many Bethesda fans understood Howard had different Indiana Jones objects on display behind him when he took part in a Xbox interview going over the business’s upcoming acquisition by Microsoft back in September 2020. Todd is a lifelong fan of Indiana Jones. He owns a lot of cool Indiana Jones stuff.
