METROID PRIME 4: Retro Studios Has Hired CALL OF DUTY Series Veteran As Lead Engineer

According to official information, Retro Studios has shared Call of Duty series veteran Bharathwaj Nandakumar as Lead Engineer for the long-awaited, and highly anticipated Metroid Prime 4.

Metroid Prime 4 was one of Nintendo's biggest announcements of E3 in 2017, and why wouldn't it be? The last game in the Metroid Prime series was released in August of 2007, and fans had been clamouring for a new game pretty much since then.

Of course, Nintendo had the brilliant idea to announce Metroid Prime: Federation Force for the Nintendo 3DS in 2015, and to this date it is still one of the most negatively received games in both the regular Metroid and Metroid Prime series, to the point some even prefer Metroid: Other M to the Nintendo 3DS title. 

The point is that Metroid Prime 4 is still one of the most highly anticipated games for the Nintendo Switch, and three years after the game was officially announced and we still don't have any news regarding the project; other than Retro Studios is now back as the developer, and that whatever progress had been made up to that point is now gone.

Retro Studios also revealed that designers that had worked on Crysis 3 and Super Lucky's Tale had joined Metroid Prime 4's team of developers, as well as some Battlefield and Star Wars artists who joined the project later on.

Today we have some news about Metroid Prime 4, as it has been reported that Call of Duty series veteran Bharathwaj Nandakumar has also joined the project as Lead Engineer. Nandakumar has worked as Engineer in all of Activision's Call of Duty: Black Ops titles, and particularly as Senior Engineer in Call of Duty: Black Ops III.

While this may not be the kind of news that fans of the Metroid Prime series have been hoping for, at least we know that the project is still moving forward. Unfortunately, the game may still be a couple of years away from finally becoming available; again, at least we know it hasn't been cancelled.
