Oculus Rift working on internal game development specifically for VR

John Carmack

John Carmack is reportedly spearheading game development inside the halls of Oculus Rift’s offices, with the company acknowledging that they are actively working on their own game titles specifically for the headset.

Oculus Rift CEO Brendan Iribe said to Engadget that it was “early days” but Carmack’s “heart and soul and history certainly lies in the game development side”.

“It’s certainly been id’s philosophy in the past,” Iribe continues, likening it to Epic and id using their own engine tech. “It’s been John Carmack’s philosophy – you gotta eat your own dog food here, and develop internal content also.”

“We’ll see where it goes, but I wouldn’t be surprised if we didn’t do more and more internal development.”

I’m happy Carmack has jumped on this, he generally has positive ideas and he’s so much less of a windbag than all the other big industry names

Eagerly awaiting an announcement of a release date for the consumer model. Then my wallet shall be emptied!

Also good to see they’ve sorted most of the blurring and latency issues with the current prototype.

 

These games will surely be revolutionary compared to other games that are just ported to use Oculus Rift.
