Matthew then joined Blizzard in 2008 as an associate balance designer, bringing his experience in RTS development to the StarCraft II team, contributing to both StarCraft II: Wings of Liberty and StarCraft II: Heart of the Swarm. He started working on Heroes of the Storm early on in the project, starting out on balance and hero design before getting promoted to game designer and focusing in on talent design and balance in the game.
