Retro is Hiring Development Staff for Metroid Prime 4
Retro Studios is looking to boost its development staff in anticipation of the development of Metroid Prime 4.
We were all incredibly excited for Metroid Prime 4. After previously being announced at E3 two years ago, we were bound to get some new information about the upcoming title, right? Well, we sure did, but, the news was definitely not the type of news we wanted to hear. The development of Metroid Prime 4 was not going as planned and Nintendo straight up canned the project and pushed the title over to Retro Studios, the developers of the original trilogy. It was probably the right move, but, we will now have to wait much longer than anticipated to get our prime fix. However, the development team is starting to ramp up development staff for the upcoming title.
Retro Studios went to Twitter to reach out to applicants that want to apply to help with the development of Metroid Prime 4. The tweet stated: “We’re looking for a few world-class developers to join the Metroid Prime team on our Journey in developing Metroid Prime 4. Join Retro Studios today and held bring this game to life!” Applicants can apply through the development studios’ official website.
From what I can see on their website, Retro is looking to hire about 13 new developers. They have everything listed from an Art Director, Character Artist, and Cinematics Artist, to a Physics Engineer, AI Engineer, and Tools Engineers. From the looks of it, Retro is really looking to boost their development team for this title, and I do not blame them. The Prime series has a certain weight carried with it in the games industry. The first title is often named one of the greatest video games ever created. When they bring the series back, I am sure they will want it to be well worth the wait.
