Things do not look all that great for Oculus as Oculus CEO and co-founder Brendan Iribe has stepped down from his position and is now working on advancing VR with the Rift at Facebook.

The company was acquired by Facebook recently for those who do not know and it is possible that there has been a bit of a quarrel when it comes to interests. According to the Oculus CEO:

“You do your best work when you love what you’re working on. If that’s not the case, you need to make a change”

It seems that he needed some change or at least that is what he says. There is no way of knowing what is really going on here. He further goes on to say that:

“Changing the world … has required us to also scale Oculus at warp speed. With our growth and product strategy, we’ve decided to establish new PC and mobile VR groups to be more focused, strengthen development and accelerate our roadmap”

Developing VR is no easy task especially when there is no concept of the technology but the Oculus CEO was able to pull it off. But now that it is said and done it is possible that he is more interested in other things rather than Oculus itself.

“Looking ahead and thinking about where I’m most passionate, I’ve decided to lead the PC VR group – pushing the state of VR forward with Rift, research and computer vision. As we’ve grown, I really missed the deep, day-to-day involvement in building a brand new product on the leading edge of technology”

Oculus CEO

The Ex Oculus CEO is still working at Facebook and is working on VR. There is still much potential in VR that great things can happen in the future and we are looking forward to what 2017 has to offer. What do you think about Oculus CEO stepping down?
