In 2005, LucasArts announced a new Indiana Jones game for next-generation consoles. Originally scheduled for a release in 2007, the game saw constant delays as a result of internal struggles. Due to severe quality issues, it was decided to cancel the project in early 2009. Only externally developed versions for Wii, PS2, DS and PSP saw a release.
When first shown, LucasArts highlighted Indiana Jones as their first game on Xbox 360 and PS3 – with a story written by George Lucas himself. Set in 1939, the player was going to visit locations such as San Francisco as well as “the world’s most sacred grounds”.

Is there any chance you could put the other clips on youku too? I’m so mad lucasfilm dragged them off youtube.
I’m working on it ;)
they really need to reconsider about the PS3 and xbox 360 versions of indy and the staff of kings! It’s just not right!
This is annoying. Only the first video works. The others say “This clip has been blocked in your region.”
Where do you live Jake? From here (italy) all the videos work! :)
In remember play a demo for this a while ago its was pretty good shame it never got made.
There was even going to be a novel based on this :-)
For all those who have watched the Indiana Jones film series, can now witness its return in a video game called as Indiana Jones returns in 2007, designed by George Lucas and Lucas Arts’ new partner Industrial Light & Magic. As per available information, this game incorporates ‘cinematic realism’ through characters and surroundings, where new euphoria technology, developed by NaturalMotion, deals with former and the latter is dealt by Pixelux Entertainment’s Digital Molecular Matter (DMM) technology.
As per reports, this game is for the next generation consoles, so we can expect complex effects for the action and expedition that typical to an Indiana Jones spirit.
Thanks a lot for the description!
This is all wrong. That game was never canceled! It WAS released on Wii and PSP, NOT CANCELED! There might have been plans to make Xbox 360 versions, but The Staff of Kings WAS NEVER CANCELED!
The Xbox 360 / PS3 version was going to be a different game, even if using the same title
Disney & Lucasfilm really ought to Consider Reviving this Game & to Finish Up Development on it & have it Released alongside the Upcoming 5 Film that is Scheduled for a July 2021 Release but until then if there is still any Hope left that we as Indy Fans can Finally get a Proper Indiana Jones Game for Playstation 3, Xbox 360 & probably PC as Originally Intended, That would be Nice.
And as of Now for the Time Being & still Currently Going On, I have 2 Petitions Related to this Cancelled Game over at Change.org & if anyone here could help out by Visiting & Supporting the Petitions by Signing them that would be Deeply Appreciated.
