Jason Rubin has announced that this Christmas’ Jak III will be the last game that he works on at developer Naughty Dog, which is owned by Sony. Rubin’s decision comes only days after he gave a controversial speech at the DICE Summit, where he called upon developers to unite as a community and criticized publishers for failing to promote talent. "The speech was directed at the industry in general, not one company," explains Rubin. "But in the future, in order to realize the goals I outlined in my talk, I need to expand my reach outside of Naughty Dog’s parameters." Rubin, who is credited with producing a variety of best selling games including Crash Bandicoot and Jak & Daxter, says that he does not yet have any firm plans for the future, beyond Jak III, but that he does want to explore the relationship between the video games industry and Hollywood.
