Naughty Dog co-founder, Jason Rubin, takes over as THQ's president as Danny Bilson leaves
Last year, THQ initiated a huge reorganization, restructuring their company from top to bottom as the result of falling revenue, rising debt, and failing stock, after it became apparent to both analysts and the company's own executive board that a great many of their major titles would sell significantly lower than projected.

Today, that reorganization may be almost at a close. As THQ's former Executive VP of Core Games, Danny Bilson, announced that he was leaving to "pursue other interests," the company hired Naughty Dog co-founder Jason Rubin on to take the role of President.
"Jason's proven track record in the industry speaks for itself, and he is one of the brightest minds in the business," said THQ's CEO Brian Farrell. "We believe he can be a game changer and can contribute immensely to executing on our strategy of delivering quality connected core gaming experiences."
