It’s now been over a year and a half since Retro Studios took over development of Metroid Prime 4 and rebooted the whole project, and though it’s likely going to be a while before we see the game in action (much less play it ourselves), we can at least take solace in the fact that Retro are hard at work on it.
The studio has been staffing up for the upcoming Switch exclusive for a while, hiring veteran developers from across the industry – from DICE and Visceral to 343 Industries – and they’re continuing to staff up for the game. They recently took to Twitter, saying that they’re looking to add a new Lead Producer to their team for the development of Metroid Prime 4. “Join us on our journey,” the developer wrote.
Meanwhile, if you head on over to their careers page, you’ll see that Lead Producer isn’t the only position they’re looking to fill. The Austin-based studio also has openings in positions such as Senior Level Designer, Lead Graphics Engineer, Lead Animator, Boss / AI Designer, Concept Artist, and more.
Metroid Prime 4 is in development for the Nintendo Switch. It currently has no release date.
