Rage creative director Matt Hooper heads to Rift maker

Another ex-Id employee joins Oculus VR

Oculus VR has hired a second developer from Id Software.

GameFront reports that Matt Hooper, the creative director of 2011 release Rage, left the studio six months ago and has now been confirmed as the director of development at the virtual reality specialist.

“We are thrilled to have Matt Hooper join the Oculus VR team,” an Oculus statement confirmed. “Hooper will be working out of the Dallas, Texas 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.”

Earlier this week it was revealed that Id veteran John Carmack had also joined the Oculus Rift creators, although a certain level of ambiguity remains concerning his ongoing employment at Id.
