Yes, Bandai Namco is working on Metroid Prime 4

Retro Studios  Nintendo

Development of this latest installment in the beloved Metroid Prime series will be a partnership between the Bandai Namco team and Nintendo's in-house developers.

Metroid Prime 4 was revealed via a short teaser trailer at E3 2017 that just showed its logo and became one of the most talked about games at the show.

Rumors have been flying around naming Bandai Namco as the developer behind the newest Metroid adventure, and now Eurogamer is reporting that "multiple sources" have confirmed this information as accurate.

We're sure to hear more on Metroid Prime 4 in the months to come as the game has yet to receive a proper release date.

So what do you think of Bandai Namco handling Metroid Prime 4? It's possible that we see this game launch this year - we have no idea how long it's been in development - but this is one project that they're going to right, not fast. Rumours began appearing on forums like Resetera and were then widely reported elsewhere. Bandai Namco Singapore staffers include those who have worked on the ambitious Star Wars 1313 that was cancelled amidst Disney buying out LucasArts.

Eurogamer's report follows a swath of rumors swirling around online, including designers and other staff members touting the fact that they are working on Switch-exclusive projects and "unannounced IPs", though Nintendo has declined to comment on the situation officially to Eurogamer.

The same profile also states that Ridge Racer 8, a "drift based high speed auto racing game" is in production and will also by exclusive to Switch.

The rumors of Bandai Namco working on Metroid Prime 4 cropped up from job descriptions within the company posted on LinkedIn.

Namco is, of course, no stranger to working with Nintendo on the latter's biggest franchises.
