Rumor: Indiana Jones game canceled?

IGN had multiple sources saying that the in-development Indiana Jones game has been canceled. Kotaku has a vague response from LucasArts that could mean anything.

I’m not sure exactly how long it takes to make the things, but I believe the last we heard of it was early footage/teasers for it around the same time as The Force Unleashed was getting teased – back before Celebration IV. I’m inclined to write it off… Particularly after the long, rumorful runup to the The Old Republic announcement, or the years of buzz overload (okay, there were a few delays) that paved the way for The Force Unleashed. On the other hand, with Bioware handling TOR and TFU out and about, maybe Indy is next up on the LucasArts plate. No doubt we’ll hear something… eventually.

    The response from LFL (as reported on joystiq.com):

    gives a lot of wiggle room – perhaps the game is canned, but they plan to do something else. i remember seeing clips of the game at Comic-Con a few years back – the SW spectacular brought out some of the game designers to show how cool the effects of the Euphoria game engine were, with Indy on a bridge with rocks repeatedly dropped on him, and watching how he would react each time.
