Back in June, Retro Studios was hiring for Metroid Prime 4’s development, including for an Art Director, and one particular person that was recently hired as a lead character artist at Retro Studios is Kyle Hefley, a character modeler who previously worked at 343 Industries, the studio behind the recent Halo games. [Thanks, VGC!]
Hefley helped modeled many Spartan soldiers that appeared in Halo 4 and Halo 5, including Master Chief in Halo 4. Given that both Master Chief and Samus are known for rarely taking off their armor in their sci-fi series, it’s not hard to see why he was hired to join Retro Studios.

Metroid Prime 4 is in development for Nintendo Switch.
