Development of Metroid Prime 4 is well underway at Retro Studios, and a new addition to the team has just been confirmed. Jhony Ljungstedt, who is credited for his work on the Battlefield and Medal of Honor franchises as an Art Director, has confirmed via his LinkedIN profile recently that he will be leaving his role at EA Dice for a position at Retro Studios.

Today was my last day at DICE and it’s with mixed feelings I’m leaving something that’s been part of my life for such a long time. It’s been great journey and I feel privileged to have got the chance to work with all the talented people at DICE, you will all be missed… Now I’m ready for a new chapter in my life, and looking forward to my new journey at Retro Studios.

While his specific role isn’t confirmed, it can be presumed that he has taken the Art Director position that Retro Studios first advertised for in November 2018.
