Frank Pearce One of Blizzard's Original Founders is Stepping Away

Frank Pearce, who co-founded the company back when it was known as Silicon & Synapse, announced that he has made a decision to move on from the developer after 28 years.

Everything I have done at Blizzard has been driven by my passion.

"Blizzard is a special place and a special community, and everyone with whom you interact is important to the Blizzard journey as it continues forward".

As far as his future plans are concerned, for now, Pearce said he will spend more time outdoors, learn to play an instrument, and generally "devote more time" to aspects of his life that many not have "gotten as much attention in the past". "Thank you to all of you for providing me the sense of inclusion I require as a person". Blizzard is better because of Frank Pearce.
