John Carmack Joins Oculus VR

According to this report, John Carmack is now a full time employee at Oculus Rift while still being full time employed by Bethesda. Ummm, say what?!? If you ask me, there's definitely something going on behind the scenes here. eek!

Bethesda tells them: "John has long been interested in the work at Oculus VR and wishes to spend time on that project. The technical leadership he provides for games in development at id Software is unaffected." This has a certain vagueness to it, and Oculus VR's announcement states "John will be working from the new Oculus Dallas office that we’re opening soon." When pressed, Bethesda told GamesIndustry International that he "will spend time working out of Oculus as part of his role with them, but he will also continue to work at id."
