Oculus VR announces John Carmack has joined them as Chief Technical Officer as they continue the quest towards viable consumer-level VR headsets. According to GamesIndustry International Oculus VR initially referred to him as "formerly at id Software," but they have a statement from Bethesda clarifying this is not the case, and this press release says no such thing. Bethesda tells them: "John has long been interested in the work at Oculus VR and wishes to spend time on that project. The technical leadership he provides for games in development at id Software is unaffected." This has a certain vagueness to it, and Oculus VR's announcement states "John will be working from the new Oculus Dallas office that weíre opening soon." When pressed, Bethesda told GamesIndustry International that he "will spend time working out of Oculus as part of his role with them, but he will also continue to work at id." Kotaku notes a John Carmack tweet clarifying his priorities: "My time division is now Oculus over Id over Armadillo. Busy busy busy!" The announcement includes John's thoughts on the occasion:
