SkyBox Labs is coming to Burnaby

The company, co-developer of Halo Infinite, is setting up two studios in Metro Vancouver, and both of those are in Burnaby: one in the Metropolis at Metrotown area and one in the Brentwood area.

The SkyBox Solo studio at Brentwood will be 20,000 square feet, while the Metrotown studio comes in at 12,000 square feet. The company is also launching a third studio in Victoria.

Riding the wave of the successful launch of Halo Infinite, SkyBox Labs is setting another "growth spurt," as a press release says.

"With Halo Infinite, our team was able to showcase more than just our engineering skills," said Shyang Kong, co-founder of SkyBox Labs, in a press release. "We've been fortunate to contribute to the title's UX/UI, design, animation, character art, environment art, lighting, tech art, production and QA. The new studio spaces will give us ample room to  grow as we continue to work on Halo Infinite and more."

SkyBox will grow to more than 250 employees in 2022, the release notes. It's actively hiring for engineers, designers, producers, artists and more.
