Way back in 2008, a group of employees from Metroid Prime developer Retro Studios departed to form a new company called Armature. Despite being in business for over four years, the company has yet to actually ship a product. That will change this summer, though, when the Metal Gear Solid HD Collection releases on PlayStation Vita.

According to a listing on Konami’s website, Armature co-developed the Vita port of Metal Gear Solid HD with Bluepoint Games (the studio responsible for the PS3 release).

Hopefully this gives Armature the kick start they need. Four years without a game doesn’t sound particularly viable to us.
