Valve VR boss Abrash joins Oculus

Valve’s Michael Abrash has joined Oculus after three and a half years with the company.

He has been appointed by Oculus as chief scientist just days after the firm was bought by Facebook for $2 billion.

Abrash had been leading Valve’s own foray into virtual reality development but said the opportunity to join the VR start-up was too great to pass up.

"We’re on the cusp of what I think is not the next big platform, but rather simply the final platform – the platform to end all platforms – and the path here has been so improbable that I can only shake my head," he said.

Head over to Develop for more details.
