Naughty Dog co-founder and co-creator of Crash Bandicoot and Jak and Daxter, Jason Rubin, has replaced Danny Bilson as president of THQ.
Jason Rubin is responsible for THQ’s worldwide product development, marketing, and publishing operations. He reports directly to CEO Brian Farrell.
"THQ has incredible internal and external game development teams, and an exciting slate of games in its development pipeline," Rubin said. "I look forward to working with the management team and board to realize the company’s goals."
Bilson has left to pursue other business interests. The shakeup has also seen the departure of senior vice president Dave Davis and the acquisition of a new chief strategy officer.
The personnel changes follow THQ's financial woes which resulted in mass redundancies over the past few months.
As it looks to bounce back from a horror period, THQ is focusing on its core franchises including the likes of Darksiders II, Metro: Last Light and WWE '13.
