Minecraft creator admits he's no longer upset over Oculus & Facebook


Abandoned Oculus Rift support for Minecraft could potentially be picked up again.

When the news surfaced in March that Oculus Rift was to be bought by Facebook for $2 billion, Minecraft’s creator Markus 'Notch' Persson publicly declared he had cancelled a deal to bring Minecraft to Oculus Rift.

"We were in talks about maybe bringing a version of Minecraft to Oculus. I just cancelled that deal," tweeted Persson at the time, adding. "Facebook creeps me out."

It now appears that the passage of time has allowed Persson’s Oculus wounds to heal. In a recent tweet he seems to be warming up to Oculus again. "And about now I'm officially over being upset about Facebook buying Oculus. I'm upset about there being a hole in my favorite sock instead." he joked on Twitter.

The response from Oculus CTO, John Carmack to Persson’s Tweet shows some hope that a Minecraft Oculus version may still be on the cards.

Meanwhile 4J studios are working to bring the ubiquitous sandbox game to 8th generation consoles in time for a promised release date this month.
