This one is all about the Gorilla.

During a studio tour of Retro Studios in Texas, IGN chatted a bit with president and CEO Michael Kelbaugh about the possibility of a return to the Metroid franchise.
“I think Retro will always be associated with the Metroid Prime franchise and who knows, maybe we’ll do another one someday,” Kelbaugh said.
However, he did note that for now the team was aware it would only be responsible for a trilogy.
Meanwhile, Kelbaugh said that Retroid is working on other projects now in order to “refresh” its development team.
Maybe is always better than no. More through the link.

Nintendo has responded to reports this morning that three senior staffers had been “escorted” from Retro’s premises, and the statement isn’t the most upbeat.
“We still continue to work alongside the team at Retro and no official announcements as to its status have been made,” the company told CVG.
“All existing reports are rumour and speculation.”
The initial report said that “design director Mark Pacini, art director Todd Keller, and principal technology engineer Jack Mathews were escorted” from Retro Studios’ premises “last Friday”.

According to Shacknews, “design director Mark Pacini, art director Todd Keller, and principal technology engineer Jack Mathews were escorted” from Retro Studios’ premises “last Friday”.
The news comes after several rumours popped up this week that the outfit was closing. The site claims this simply isn’t true.
IGN posted this last night, confirming the departures.
No one appears to have any idea what actually happened, but SN is speculating that the three may have “left” to form a new company.
The Metroid developer will continue to work on Wii games, say both stories.
