Metroid Prime 4

Retro Studios have bee actively working on Metroid Prime 4looking to recruit various people to bolster their team for the project, and now they’ve added yet another name to their ranks. Kyle Hefley, who was the senior character modeller at Halo developers 343 Industries, has joined Retro Studios to work on Metroid Prime 4.

Hefley’s LinkedIn profile mentions that he was at 343 Industries for nearly 9 years, having worked on both, Halo 4 and Halo 5: Guardians. He now serves as the Lead Character Artist on Metroid Prime 4. The Metroid games – the Prime subseries in particular – have a very distinct and particular visual aesthetic, so it will be interesting to see what flavour Hefley brings to the table.

Metroid Prime 4 was first announced all the way back in 2017, but earlier this year, Nintendo announced that development on the game had been restarted from scratch, with Retro Studios taking over as lead developers (something that they pitched themselves, apparently). As such, it’s going to be a while before we hear anything new about the game, much less get a release date. Hopefully Nintendo will release the long-rumoured Metroid Prime Trilogy in the meantime to tide us over.
