Legendary developer, John Carmack, has joined Oculus VR as the company’s new Chief Technology Officer. This is potentially a very exciting prospect considering the impact Carmack has had on the industry, with the push of the FPS with games such as Doom and Quake, as well as the push of 3D gaming.
Posting a note on Oculus’ blog Carmack said that he believed virtual reality would have a major impact in the future, but also focused on the fact that a lot of work still needs doing before technology like the Oculus Rift will be in a fully operational state.
This may be the biggest endorsement that Oculus could really have hoped for. Can you imagine if John Carmack helps refine the technology and then develop what could be a new title that has a huge impact on the industry, just like Doom originally had 20 years ago?
Here’s hoping for some great things from this appointment.
