Rubin promises no more studio closures at THQ

Naughty Dog man plans to nurture THQ back to health

THQ has seen a fairly rocky period in the past year but the new boss, Jason Rubin has promised that there will be no more closures.

Over the course of the last year THQ has closed Kaos in New York, Digital Warrington, a studio in Phoenix, THQ Australia, the studio behind De Blob Blue Tongue and most recently, UFC studio THQ San Diego.

The Naughty Dog co-founder began, "We have the appropriate number of teams, and the appropriate number of people working on products, and we're not going to be continuing to cut teams."

"I have to go around and look at everything over the next few weeks," Rubin continued, "and I have to then decide which of the titles are the ones we're going to focus on based on what I believe our future should be. I'm taking every project as [if it were] clay, a clay statue that's been built. It's not nearly been completed. It can be augmented, it can be shrunk, it can be changed. Everything is up for change to make the best possible product [it] could be."
