Phazon and Dark Samus is probably going to go the way of Halo's Flood, you think it's gone but some very specific situation means it's not gone and will return someday. Given how much Prime 4 means for the future of the Metroid franchise, I'd guess it returns in Prime 4 to be safe.

@EvilLucario True. I got confused by the ending where an X-Parasite infected a creature, but completely forgot about the secret images where (SPOILERS AHEAD) the chozo that arrived on the planet, annihilate the ones in SR388. If they choose to put these as the new villains in Metroid 5, what will happen with the (MAJOR FUSION SPOILER) corrupted side of the Galactic Ferderation?

It's been barely a year since they said they we're handing it over to Retro Studios. We probably won't hear anything till next year at the earliest.

I'm guessing a christmas 2021 release. They'll release the Prime Trilogy HD first though. Either later this year or early 2021.

I think we could see it launch around spring/summer of 2022. It’s a large game with a massive scope so Retro will need time to do the series justice

We don't know if it is "a large game with a massive scope". But I would think that they need at least 3 years. Let's just hope that we see it on Switch.

Metroid Prime 4 has been on and off development for years now. Sure, they started fresh not that long ago, but we don't know how many of the previously made assets will carry over in the final version. Maybe they'll use the same engine as the original development team used. Maybe Retro Studios will be able to carry some of the assets over from the cancelled game they were supposedly working on. We just don't know.
My guess is it'll be released somewhere during Fall/Winter 2021, a couple of weeks at least after the next mainline Pokémon game.

I wonder how they'll include DLC for this game. Will it be multiplayer? Will it be more single player content like in Breath of the Wild? Or will it be a side story like in Xenoblade Chronicles 2?
