In a recent interview with US Gamer, Retro Studios Michael Kelbaugh said that the talented development team would be lucky to get the chance to work on another game in the Metroid franchise. We already heard last week that Retro Studios have been busy developing a new game since development of Donkey Kong Tropical Freeze ended back in November.
“You’re not going to find a larger bunch of Metroid of Metroid Prime fans than at Retro studios. We’ll be lucky to someday, maybe, work on another one. There’s a lot of people in the studio left over from Metroid Prime that are very passionate about Metroid… If the fans keep asking, then maybe we’ll answer.”
