The most recent Indiana Jones games were ones in the Lego series. Both Lego Indiana Jones: The Original Adventures and Lego Indiana Jones: The Adventure Continues appeared in 2008 and 2009 on multiple platforms. Each one offered a more comedic and brick-like retelling of the events of the movies. However, there have been a few mobile spin-offs from companies like Zynga.
As for MachineGames, people might have heard its name a lot recently. The company has been involved with developing a number of Wolfenstein titles as of late. Most recently, it worked on ones like Wolfenstein: The Old Blood, Wolfenstein II: The New Colossus, and even helped with Wolfenstein: Youngblood.
A new Indiana Jones game is in development for as-yet-unnamed platforms.
