Halo Infinite is still pretty on on its development, given the recent reports that its engine, Slipspace, is still being worked on. Its development will soon speed up though since 343 Industries is partnering up with Skybox Labs for it.
The news comes from Skybox Labs’ website, where the studio revealed their partnership with 343 Industries. They have previously worked on other Halo projects such as Halo 5: Guardians, which we now know that it’s a direct prequel to Halo Infinite.
The representatives of both ends have expressed their excitement for the partnership on Halo Infinite, where they’ll be working on various aspects and features of the game such as its AI and networking and graphics. Here’s what they said according to Skybox Labs’ website:
“343 Industries is excited to continue our partnership with SkyBox Labs on Halo Infinite, with their team doing great work across many areas of our project,” said Chris Lee, Head of Halo FPS at 343 Industries. “We have been working closely with 343 Industries on Halo projects for a number of years, and we’re thrilled to be part of this exciting time in Halo’s history,” said Shyang Kong, Co-founder, SkyBox Labs. “Seeing the new art style and the return of the Master Chief, combined with the technology of the Slipspace Engine, has our studio energized and focused on teaming up with our partners at 343 Industries to realize the vision of Halo Infinite,” added Steven Silvester, Co-founder, SkyBox Labs.
SkyBox Labs is a game development studio based in Vancouver, BC, Canada. The studio has developed titles alongside some of the world’s top publishers including Microsoft Studios, GungHo, and Electronic Arts. The studio is currently working on projects in the Halo universe, the Minecraft universe, and on unannounced internal IP. As it seem, we have another title of Skybox Labs’ coming in the future alongside Halo Infinite.
