Hot off the heels of the release of Metroid Dread, MercurySteam has their sights on another partnership. However, it’s not with Nintendo. In a press release from Digital Bros. Group, the document states that its global publishing company 505 Games will will partner with MercurySteam to develop and publish a brand new IP under the codename “Project Iron.” Very little is said about the endeavor, just that the title is a third-person action RPG in a dark fantasy world. Talking about the partnership itself, the document reads:

“We are thrilled to work with the team at MercurySteam, a proven studio that over the years has created
numerous phenomenal IPs – including the recent hit release Metroid Dread in partnership with Nintendo”
commented Raffi and Rami Galante, co-CEOs of Digital Bros Group. “With MercurySteam’s creative vision and talent and 505 Games extensive experience, gamers can expect a high-quality, captivating and engaging
videogame.”

505 Games and Digital Bros. are no strangers to publishing games on PC and a variety on consoles, so this partnership is likely to give MercurySteam more experience with platforms outside of Nintendo’s wares. Effectively reviving the Metroid series definitely boosted their portfolio, and hopefully this trend of quality continues its momentum.
