Metroid Dread Leaker Says MercurySteam’s New 2D Metroid Game Is in the Works

There has been another Metroid series leak, and this time it comes from a reliable source. MercurySteam, the Spanish development studio responsible for developing Metroid Dread, is reported to be working on another 2D entry in the Metroid series.

A few hours ago, a Twitter user and leaker NWeedle disclosed that MercurySteam is working on another 2D entry in the Metroid series, set for release in 2025. We know that the leaker is credible as he had earlier announced that the Spanish studio was working on the first entry in the series to get released on Nintendo Switch before the official announcement itself. 

This rumor suggests that MercurySteam is working on their third Metroid game. The 2017 Nintendo 3DS game Metroid: Samus Returns was developed by the team. As the studio has already shown they can handle the 2D Metroid games, it wouldn’t be shocking if they made another one. It is not known at this time if this would be an entirely new game (like Dread), or if it would be another remake (like Samus Returns).

We also do not have any information on the platforms that this game will be released for. Even though Nintendo hasn’t announced a successor to the Switch platform, it’s very likely that a new console will be available by 2025, and that this game will be developed for it. It is however unlikely that development hsa started, as there is almost no info on the next-gen console from Nintendo. 

NWeedle further said:

I love recovering old tweets. The truth is that at that time in 2020 I had a lot of data, but the confirmation came a couple of months before the game was revealed. What I like the most about this is now when I tell you: 2D, MS, 2025″

Keep in mind that this is only a rumor, and nothing has been confirmed by the authorities just yet, so take this with a grain of salt. We will keep you updated as soon as any new information is made available to us.
