FEATURED VOXPOP oblivion437 Update: I was unfortunately not aware of Shamus Young's severe criticism of Fallout 3 available here to link in the original piece and I regret that.  It dovetails rather nicely with what I've written and it's much better executed than my piece.  I strongly recommend anyone...

John Carmack Is The New CTO Of Oculus VR

Posted on Wednesday, August 7 @ 09:07:34 Eastern by Keri_Honea

John Carmack, lead programmer and co-founder of id Software, has joined Oculus VR as their new chief technology officer to oversee their Oculus Rift virtual-reality headset.

“The dream of VR has been simmering in the background for decades, but now, the people and technologies are finally aligning to allow it to reach the potential we imagined,” Carmack said in a press release. “I’m extremely excited to make a mark in what I truly believe will be a transformative technology.”

Of course, Oculus VR is quite pleased with their new addition as well.

“To build the best virtual reality experience, we’re putting together a team of the brightest minds, and John Carmack is at the top of the list. It’s a true honor,” said Brendan Iribe, co-founder and CEO of Oculus. “A pioneer of 2D, 3D, and now VR, John continues to define the future of computer graphics and gaming. We share John’s commitment to providing the world with open platforms that inspire innovation and creation.”

However, this news does not mean that Carmack is leaving id Software. Both Bethesda and Carmack have confirmed that he will be full-time with Oculus, but he is still involved with id.

"My time division is now Oculus over Id over Armadillo. Busy busy busy!" Carmack tweeted.
