Retro Studios has hired a number of VFX artists as it continues to ramp up production of Metroid Prime 4.

Adad Morales, who previously worked on Battlefield Hardline and the cancelled Star Wars Ragtag project at EA’s Visceral studio, has been hired as Retro’s new VFX lead, it’s been confirmed

Morales also worked on a cancelled StarCraft first-person shooter at Blizzard, according to his personal website. Some examples of his work can be seen via the video embeds on this page.

Bryan Erck, who was previously the lead VFX artist for Crystal Dynamics’ Shadow of the Tomb Raider, and Nicholas Wilson, who spent 12 years at Borderlands studio Gearbox, have also joined Retro as senior VFX artists.

Interesting.

I wonder... I'd just like to know how far along they are, and whether the project is going well finally.

After reading visceral and remembering dead space made me realise I wouldn't mind metroid prime 4 going 3rd person instead of 1st. I don't mind either but may be an idea to make it feel fresh and new compared to the other 3.

Hope it turns out well. This game is probably going to be the switch's swan song.

Good to see them hiring more quality staff. It wouldn’t surprise me if Metroid Prime 4 was a Switch 2 (cross gen ofc) launch title targeting Winter 2022.
