The message was delivered by Nintendo's Shinya Takahashi, who said the team at Retro Studios and Nintendo are still hard at work on the next entry:
"Currently, we're working hard on the latest game in the Metroid Prime series, Metroid Prime 4, which we previously announced."
The last major update about Metroid Prime 4 was when Nintendo completely scrapped and restarted development back in 2019 - putting Retro at the helm. Since then, it's mostly been small updates like the one above from Nintendo, and some minor details via recruitment pages.
It's also now been four years since the game was announced.
