Retro Studios has hired Blizzard and Rockstar Games veteran Marisa Palumbo to be its new lead producer.

As reported by Video Games Chronicle, Palumbo worked for Rockstar for almost 10 years as a producer, working on games such as Grand Theft Auto IV, Grand Theft Auto V, LA Noire, Manhunt 2 and Red Dead Redemption.

Palumbo’s experience with triple-A titles continued as she joined Blizzard. During her time there, Palumbo worked as part of the Overwatch team.

However, the games vet is not the first person Retro has hired this year to work on Metroid Prime 4.

Back in June, it hired Bharathwaj’ Bat’ Nandakumar as its lead engineer. Furthermore, the studio has welcomed Adad Morales and Mark Capers as VFX lead artist and environment designer, respectively.
