Retro Studios 'Taking a Break' from Metroid Series

As the conclusion to a trilogy would suggest, the Metroid Prime series seems to be over, and Retro Studios confirmed to Yahoo! Games they're moving onto something new:

"We are taking a break from Metroid series and from Samus," said Metroid Prime 3 Game Director Mark Pacini. "I'm sure there will be other [Metroid] titles created, [but] as far as the Retro Studios is concerned, we're taking a break for a little bit."

The story is too old to be commented.

It's hard to imagine having to say "goodbye" to the Metroid Prime saga, but it's also very exciting to know that Retro Studios will be working on something original! With all the innovation they brought to Metroid, just imagine what they could do to other ancient franchises or brand new ones!

I'm gonna miss them, and the Prime series. What a great job they did. At least they left on a good note.

We need a little time off from a franchise to really love it. I saw someone list all the real Mario games, and we average one every 2 years! Don't think that's not a reason for its popularity for 20 years.

It's good Metriod is getting a little break. We'll love it more when it comes back.

after doing 3 games I would want to do a break as well, it wouldn't surprise me if Retro's next game isn't even a FPS
