We haven't heard anything about Metroid Prime 4 since the announcement took the world by storm at E3 2017. It seems like there's good reason for that. In a new video, Nintendo has announced that Metroid Prime 4 development hasn't been leading to the quality product that fans expect from the series. As a result, development will be completely restarted, now with Retro Studios at the helm.

What does this mean for anxious fans? Easily another 3-4 years before release. It's bittersweet though, because with Retro back on the project, we're virtually guaranteed another masterpiece. There's some concern that the team at modern Retro Studios aren't really responsible for the Metroid Prime trilogy, but there's plenty of core Metroid Prime team members still at Retro. Either way, Metroid Prime 4 is still coming, but it'll be awhile.
