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.

Played with one of these today – suffice to say will be buying one when they hit retail.

 

I haven’t read anywhere in the previous article, nor any other source, that Carmack ever actually “departed” the company. Maybe recheck that?

 

He didn’t depart at all… I read in another article that he’s still with id, just time focused on Oculus currently.

 

Yeah, he hasn’t left id Software: link

Not sure how he has the time to work 3 jobs but he has said in a tweet that his “time division is now Oculus over Id over Armadillo”.
