Crash co-creator joins THQ

Jason Rubin, the co-creator of Crash Bandicoot and Jax and Daxter, has taken up a position left by Danny Bilson at THQ. Bilson has left to pursue other interests and Rubin will look after product development, marketing and publishing duties worldwide.

Brian Farrell, THQ CEO, had this to say about welcoming  Rubin to the company.

Jason’s proven track record in the industry speaks for itself, and he is one of the brightest minds in the business. We believe he can be a game changer and can contribute immensely to executing on our strategy of delivering quality connected core game experiences.

During this change, the company is looking to move from licensed games into building more AAA titles. The move comes as THQ hits some troubled times with its stock market listing dropping. They are also not hosting a booth at this years E3.

Hopefully Rubin can make the right decisions and the company can move forward. I hope to see great things come out from this and look forward to the new direction.
