Developer Biography

Bob Fitch entered the gaming industry by joining Silicon & Synapse in 1992 before he was even out of college. He graduated with a BS in Computer Science from Cal State Fullerton. His first project was Rock n' Roll Racing which released in 1993. His second major project was to write a new game engine that was ultimately used to build WarCraft: Orcs & Humans. After that he contributed to almost every title Blizzard Entertainment released in some way or another. Most recently he is the Technical Director for Hearthstone and sits on Blizzard's Engineering Council.

His specialties include "large data" and algorithms, AI programming, compilers, and most notably game balance. He designed & engineered the AI for all their RTS games up through Starcraft II, and the original World of Warcraft combat game mechanics and spell balance.
