Guasti announced via Twitter that he would be working on level design for the studios' next title, Ori and the Will of the Wisps. The other special occasions the tweet was referring to were the 1st anniversary of AM2R and 31st anniversary of Metroid yesterday.
Ori and the Will of Wisps now has no release date but it'll be available on Xbox One and PC.

Watching AM2R - Another Metroid 2 Remake - get cancelled under the mighty boot of Nintendo was painful for some fans to watch. The game featured updated 16-bit style graphics, and an original soundtrack. We'll have it covered the moment Moon Studios drops that tidbit. I'm now part of Moon Studios. "I gladly accepted the offer". Ori takes a lot of inspiration from the book of "Metroidvania", the buzz term for free-form 2-D design that encourages exploration and enables players to tackle a game's challenges in whichever way they choose. One can see the love and attention to detail that went into its design.
Though it's not his beloved Metroid and he isn't working at Nintendo, Guasti appears wholeheartedly enthusiastic about this new beginning.
Microsoft announced the Ori sequel for both Xbox One and Windows 10 PC during its E3 press conference earlier this year.
Ori and the Will of the Wisps doesn't yet have a release date, but is expected to be available on PC and Xbox One.
