Jason Rubin hints at next project

Naughty Dog cofounder sets up MySpace site to promote first project at Morgan Rose, Iron and the Maiden.


In March of 2004, Jason Rubin confirmed his departure from Naughty Dog, the company he cofounded with Andy Gavin in the mid-'80s. At the time, Rubin said he wanted "to take on new challenges and create something new."

Details on that "something new" are starting to emerge. Rubin set up a MySpace site earlier this month with a logo for his new company Morgan Rose's upcoming game, Iron and the Maiden, along with a silhouetted character and a short post hinting at what he's trying to accomplish with the game. It reads:

"After 20 years at Naughty Dog I've decided to try something new. 'Iron and the Maiden' will be my first solo project. It isn't 'Crash Bandicoot,' and it isn't 'Jak and Daxter.' This is something new. Raw, Uncensored, Uncut. It's been in the back of my head for years looking to get out, and I've assembled an incredible team to bring it to fruition. Stay Tuned..."

Rubin confirmed for GameSpot the authenticity of the MySpace site and said he would reveal further details about the game there, but likely not for a month or more.
