Retro Studios

In July, Retro Studios added a longtime staffer from Sony Santa Monica. Jon Marcella, who worked on the most recent God of War games, is now with the Metroid Prime 4 developer as an environment designer.

Marcella was a designer on God of War: Ascension having been involved with elements such as game collision. Then for God of War on PlayStation 4, he was a senior game designer (level designer), and was involved with layouts, AI scripting, navigation sequences, fight spaces, puzzles design, and more. On the whole, Marcella spent over seven years with Sony Santa Monica.

Nintendo announced in January 2019 that it had completely rebooted the development on Metroid Prime 4, with Retro Studios taking the helm. The company previously created all other mainline entries in the series. Plenty of talent has joined the team since then, including a Halo artist, DICE art director, the director of Warhawk, among others.
