Retro Taking Break From Metroid Games

With Metroid Prime 3: Corruption now on release in the US, and Retro Studios having officially completed their work on the game after three years of hard work. The company have now revealed that they will be taking a break for the series, and possibly moving on to a new IP or yet another re-imagining of a Nintendo franchise.

The game’s director Mark Pacini told Yahoo in a video interview, “We are taking a break from the Metroid series and from Samus, I’m sure there will be other titles created, but, as far as Retro Studios is concerned, we’re taking a break for a little bit.

The game European release is still way of, and we will not get our hands on what could be Retro’s last Metriod game until October 26th.
