Oculus VR becomes John Carmack's top priority

He will remain a contributing coder for Armadillo Aerospace and he will not be leaving Id Software but John Carmack will now be spending most of his time as the CTO of Oculus VR.  He has been instrumental in the design of the Oculus Rift since the very beginning and has been a major force in the development of virtual reality for decades.  This move should help the development of Oculus' products accelerate and become even more impressive than the development model that Ken and Ryan had a chance to try.  Even if this slows down the development of the next instalment of Quake or Doom, many would say it was as small sacrifice when you consider the promise which Oculus holds for the future of displays.  Catch the fallout in the comments at Slashdot and catch our coverage of his keynote from Quakecon right here.

"In a surprising move that in retrospect makes a lot of sense, Oculus VR has announced that John Carmack will be joining the company full-time as CTO. Carmack also tweeted that his time division would be 'Oculus over Id over Armadillo. Busy busy busy!'"
