MercurySteam delivered one of the better games in recent years with Metroid Dread in 2021, following the studio seems to have moved on to not one, but two new projects that are simultaneously in the works.
That’s as per a recent financial report by Nordisk Games, owner of a 40% minority stake in MercurySteam, which stated that the Spanish studio currently has two “large undisclosed” games in the works (via @MauroNL3 on Twitter).
One of these games is known to be a dark fantasy action RPG codenamed Project Iron, which will be co-published by MercurySteam and 505 Games. What the second game is remains up in the air for now, of course, but Metroid fans will be hoping that the studio is working with Nintendo on the next mainline 2D instalment in the series.
When asked recently about whether MercurySteam had Metroid 6 in the works, CEO Enric Álvarez was reluctant to say much one way or another. Read more on that through here.
