It's all in the title! Retro Studios has finally secured a Lead Character Designer for (presumably) Metroid Prime 4! Kyle Hefley is jumping from one sci-fi series to another! He previously worked at 343 Industries on the Halo series as the senior character modeler. Judging from his portfolio, and his work on those awesome Halo designs, i'd say we're in good hands. It's gonna be quite the wait, though...

Step 2: A concept sketch artist.

At least we're getting closer and closer to release.



This is interesting hire, but I kind wish they had all the roles filled already by this point....



Hiring a modeller tho.. Somehow I thought the game was in a more advanced state.
So, late 2022 release?



Nice! At this rate, we might still get the game in the 2020's!

They restarted development around January because apparently the game was sucking.



Bloody hell, still hiring?
This game ain't coming before 2022.

It's not. Wanna bet as well it won't even release as Metroid Prime 4, let alone release on the Switch. Getting kinda worried that, by whatever time the game is finished, I'll be long dead. At least Pikmin 4 is closer to launch, ammirite? 



will be a nice Switch 2 launch title

Looks like Kyle already worked up a Samus model 4 years ago.  Not really sure I like that.
