Metroid Prime 4 – Retro Studios Might Be Outsourcing Environment Work

Retro might be looking to speed up development.

Metroid Prime 4

Given that Metroid Prime 4 restarted development from scratch not that long ago, it’s something of a given that the game won’t be out for a while yet. That said, we have been receiving some development updates for it intermittently – such as Retro hiring new talent to work on the game – and we have another one here.

As discovered in a video by YouTuber Doctre81, a job listing suggests that Retro Studios might have outsourced parts of Metroid Prime 4’s development- more specifically, the environmental work to be done in the game. A contract ad for a temporary position at the studio as Environment Outsourcing Review Artist on LinkedIn mentions that the position is responsible for reviewing outsourced work and ensuring that it is up to Retro’s standards and requirements.

Of course, it’s not a given that this has to be in reference to Metroid Prime 4, and this could be related to something else Retro might be working on. That said, if Retro are indeed outsourcing chunks of the game’s development – which isn’t that uncommon, to be honest – that might help fast-track the game’s development.
