Metroid Dread Senior Programmer Leaves MercurySteam, Joins Call Of Duty: Warzone Mobile Developer

Metroid Horror was arguably the standout release on the Nintendo Switch last year.

 Although it has been around since the development of Metroid: Return of Samus for 3DS, according to him, LinkedIn worked on the free online game MecurySteam. Space lords while.

He announced this career upgrade on Twitter – stating that it was “one of the most difficult decisions” he had to make. At the same time, he revealed that he would be moving on to Digital Legends Entertainment, another Spanish developer that had just announced that it was building Call of Duty: Warzone for mobile devices.

Well, time for an update! It was one of the most complex decisions I’ve ever had to make, but I recently quit my @mercurysteam job. I have been very fortunate to share these years with a fantastic group of incredibly talented people who have given me the chance to grow and develop games that I am genuinely proud of.

At least I want to think about something. You know I’m a big fan of Nintendo and Metroid in particular. Working on Metroid Dread, and even more so as a player programmer, has been a lifetime achievement. We put our hearts into it and tried to make it the best it could be. I am continuing the legacy of this IP that I have loved for so many years, adding some personal touches that I can’t describe in words.

I want to thank the entire team for their commitment and the community as a whole for the love and praise the game has received. And a special thanks to the speedrunner community! Finally, let me single out two of the dozens to whom I am indebted: @thenend (MS gameplay programmer) and @stehcnics (leading MS programmer). They taught me a lot about the feel of the gameplay, player-centric design, and how to be a great leader. Thanks.

And that’s where I landed! 👇— Carlos (@MetanoKid) March 10, 2022
