Retro hires Halo 4 senior character modeler to work on Metroid Prime 4

Welcome aboard, Chief

Work on Metroid Prime 4 continues at Retro Studios, and the team has brought in a rather interesting new hire to keep the ball rolling. Now part of Retro's team is veteran Halo creative Kyle Hefley, who is now the studio's lead character artist. Hefley has worked on Call of Duty and Sleeping Dogs, but most importantly, he served as the senior character modeler for Halo 4, Halo 5 and the upcoming Halo Infinite. Seems like he'll be quite a good fit for the Metroid universe!

Thanks to Dondom95 for the heads up!


He should be a great addition to the cast! Metoid has never really interested me, but I think I'll give pirme 4 a shot.

If the series hasn't interested you so far I am unsure you'll like MP4. But hey! We still know nothing about the game apart from it being in development, so ....

Masterchief for Smash confirmed!

Who will win that arm wrestling contest??

Some of his character design from Halo 5 looks to me like it was inspired by Metroid! So I have no doubt he'll create some great looking characters for Prime 4.

Super excited.

that a great addition for the development team of Metroid Prime 4.

Hmm...this should be interesting.

Retro, please tell me this is not the only game you’re working on. I’m as excited for Metroid Prime as anyone, but what have you been doing for the past five years I ask?
