John Carmack prevented from working on VR games while still at id Software
It seems that John Carmack's departure from id Software to work as CTO for Oculus Rift was more than just a case of him leaving to pursue his dream of VR.
Carmack has revealed, now the dust has settled, that while he wanted to bring VR support to DOOM 4 and Wolfenstein: The New Order, ZeniMax, id's parent company were unwilling to commit resources to support fledgling VR tech.
The id co-founder explained, "[T]hey couldn't come together on that which made me really sad. It was just unfortunate. When it became clear that I wasn't going to have the opportunity to do any work on VR while at id software, I decided to not renew my contract."
It is believed that Carmack is now hard at work building games for the promising Oculus Rift headset to showcase the device's capabilities.
