Developer Biography

Rob Thompson began his online career as an active community member and crushing his phone bill on The Source, CompuServe, Prodigy and a number of public/private BBS. This initial experience and realization that online technology would be the future of communication and entertainment provided the foundation for the passion Rob has for this industry today.

Rob first entered the video game industry as a temp tester at SCEA. After shipping a number of PS2 titles he was offered an opportunity at SOE, as his knowledge and experience of PC, network/online and FPS titles better suited the needs of an open position on the PlanetSide QA team. Since that time Rob has worked his way up through the ranks and enjoyed working on the vast number of MMORPGs under the SOE umbrella.
