Matt Hooper is now director of development at the Oculus Rift creator.
Id Software co-founder John Carmack wasn’t the only one to join Oculus VR, currently developing the commercial VR headset Oculus Rift for release next year. While Carmack will be functioning as the company’s new CTO, former Rage creative director Matt Hooper has revealed that will be director of development at the company. Hooper recently updated the same in his Linkedin profile.
Oculus VR celebrated Hooper joining, stating that, “We are thrilled to have Matt Hooper join the Oculus VR team as our director of Development. 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 left id Software in February earlier this year. Carmack, on the other end, will still be working with id Software and managing duties at Oculus VR as well.
