Paul Reed is a senior designer at Retro Studios. He designed Metroid Prime and Metroid Prime 2: Echoes, but not Metroid Prime 3: Corruption. Reed was previously a design intern at id Software, where he contributed to "two high-profile releases". Reed is currently working on Retro's unannounced Wii U project, which may have shifted over to Nintendo Switch. While Reed states on his LinkedIn profile that he has worked at Retro since 2002, he is credited in games developed by other studios after 2004 (when Echoes was released) including the 2008 reboot of Turok, DC Universe Online, Battlestar Galactica Online and Kinect Star Wars.
