Skillshot Media is a 35-person esports tournament operator and production company based in Alpharetta, GA. We’re a wholly-owned subsidiary of Hi-Rez Studios, the developer of online multiplayer games SMITE and Paladins. We operate multiple esports leagues for both SMITE and Paladins, as well as games from other publishers.
Our recently opened production studio features 16,000 square feet of cutting-edge production technology, soundproof player booths for live events, and custom show stages designed for an immersive broadcast experience. With our experienced staff and a studio space tailored to competitive gaming, we’re hoping to take community-driven esports to the next level, expand opportunities for our current leagues, and explore partnerships with new games and developers that are looking to create their own esports leagues.
Hi-Rez co-founder Todd Harris is leading this new venture as our President, while Nabil Ismail acts as our Vice President of Operations. Both executives and the rest of our staff are excited about what the future holds.
PRESIDENT OF SKILLSHOT
We started live-streaming games from a bedroom, then a tiny office, and now a dedicated production studio. But our goal has always been to foster community through esports and video content. By organizing ourselves as a separate entity focused only on esports and content, we’re excited to bring even more dedicated esports attention to SMITE and Paladins, and to also explore partnerships with new games and additional game publishers and developers.
