Retro Studios will continue Metroid Prime 4 development in their newly acquired half-a-million dollar HQ
We likely still have quite a long ways to go before the highly-anticipated Metroid Prime 4 hits store shelves. With production starting from scratch in 2019, Retro Studios (developers of the original trilogy) took the project into their own hands, and have been hard at work ever since.
The company has been consistently hiring industry-experienced developers over these last few months, and they are now reportedly getting some fresh new headquarters. According to intelligence360 (a US sales intelligence firm), and first reported by VGC, Retro Studios will be spending $530,362 USD on a custom 37,335 square-foot office in Austin, Texas, with plans to move into the building around May of 2021. It's been almost a decade since they last moved offices, so it's exciting to see them secure a new location!
