Since Nintendo announced Metroid Prime 4's development would be officially restarted at the beginning of last year, Retro Studios has been recruiting new talent for this ambitious project like there's no tomorrow.

With this in mind, the Texas-based studio has now hired former Rockstar veteran, Marisa Palumbo, as lead producer.

This role only opened two months ago, according to VGC (via Júlio Rodrigo). Palumbo was previously part of Blizzard's Overwatch team for six years, and before this, spent close to a decade at Rockstar - working in production and as a producer on titles like Grand Theft Auto IV and V, Max Payne 3 and Red Dead Redemption.

Retro still needs to fill lead animator and boss/AI designer positions along with a number of other roles, and just last month it recruited former Call of Duty and God of War talent.
