Joshua Rubin is a veteran of the entertainment industry, with nearly 20 years of experience in Film, TV, Video Games and VR. He was most recently a Lead Writer at Telltale Games, where he worked on some of the biggest franchises of this century -- Game of Thrones, The Walking Dead and Minecraft. Before this, Joshua was part of the core creative team at Bungie responsible for Destiny – one of the most played games of the decade -- and at Ubisoft, where he co-wrote Assassin's Creed 2 – one of the most respected. His Assassin's Creed 2 script was nominated for Best Video Game Writing by the WGA, AIAS and BAFTA, and it is widely considered one of the best written of the Assassin's Creed series.
Joshua has also been Lead Writer on unannounced AAA franchises for EA and Capcom. Joshua's roots are in film and TV, where his very first screenplay, a love story set in Paris and New York, was one of the five winners of the prestigious Nichol Fellowship (2000) -- the annual contest for best unproduced screenplays held by the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences. In 2009, he sold his first ever TV pitch to the SyFy Channel.
Joshua consults with creative studios on their interactive narratives, shaping immersive stories and building worlds for both VR and traditional rectangular games.
