Retro Studios are continuing to bring on more talent.

Metroid Prime 4

Retro Studios have been a busy studio for the last year or so, having taken over the Metroid Prime 4 project and completely restarted the game’s development from scratch. The beginning of that project went hand-in-hand with a recruitment drive for the studio, with Halo veteran Kyle Hefley having recently joined them as Lead Character Artist on Metroid Prime 4. 

Now, the studio has attracted another artist. Jhony Ljungstedt, formerly of EA DICE, recently took to LinkedIn to confirm that he was moving on from the Battlefield studio, and has now joined Retro. As Ljungstedt’s profile shows, he was at DICE for 12 years, during which team he worked on several major projects, including as Art Director on multiple games, including Battlefield 5, Medal of Honor, Mirror’s Edge Catalyst, and more.

Metroid Prime 4 is currently in development for the Nintendo Switch, but currently does not have a release date. Recent reports have indicated that Retro might be outsourcing some of the game’s environment work. Read more on that through here.

Meanwhile, though Metroid Prime 4 is probably a while away, we might be seeing more of the series in the near future, with leaks claiming that Nintendo might be gearing up to release a 2D Metroid game for the Switch this year.
