Senior Retro staffers "escorted from premises", closure rumour scotched


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.
