Did you notice the date this article was published? It was about his non-involvement with The Last Jedi.

I doubt he will work on Indy 5. Spielberg lately works with Gary Rydstrom on sound design.

I considered Ben Burtt semi-retired ever since he left Skywalker to Pixar after Revenge of the Sith to work on his own film called Wheels, which didn't come to pass. Since he has returned to Lucasfilm, he mostly worked on George Lucas productions and/or Star Wars projects as well as two JJ Trek films.

His son, Benjamin, has sort of taken up the Burtt mantel of sound work at Skywalker and ran with it.
