Looks like John Carmack isn’t the only id Software bigwig to depart the company and join Oculus VR: RAGE creative director Matt Hooper has now signed up as well.
“We are thrilled to have Matt Hooper join the Oculus VR team as our Director of Development,” reads a statement by Oculus. “Hooper will be working out of the Dallas, TX office. He’s a top talent who had been out of id for a few months and ended up being a great fit for the Oculus team. We’re looking for more all-stars!”
Hooper is an id veteran of ten years, who is widely believed to have taken responsibility for the poor critical reception of RAGE and resigned from id.
