Jason Rubin, co-founder of The Last of Us studio Naughty Dog and key executive there until 2004, has joined Oculus as the VR company's new head of worldwide studios.

Rubin was briefly THQ president before the firm's bankruptcy, and is known at Naughty Dog for many big-name game franchises such as Crash Bandicoot & Jak & Daxter, all for PlayStation platforms.

Now Oculus says that Rubin has joined its ever-expanding team, and Rubin notes that he wants to help define the future of VR at the company.

"The team at Oculus has been working to push the boundaries of what’s possible with hardware and software," he noted. "I'm excited to bring together a new division dedicated to building high-quality VR content that helps define the platform and inspire others to do the same."

Oculus has been on a hiring spree recently, with big names like Kenneth Scott, Aaron Nicholls and Michael Abrash all joining the VR team.
