Minecraft creator Markus Persson has revealed that an Oculus Rift version of the game was potentially in the works, but following the sudden news that Facebook has acquired Oculus VR for $2 billion, thats no longer the case. I just cancelled that deal, Persson tweeted. Facebook creeps me out. He later expanded on his reasoning in a blog post, citing in particular Facebooks constantly changing platform, which has proved a challenge for game developers. I definitely want to be a part of VR, but I will not work with Facebook, wrote Persson. While gaming has been the biggest selling point for the Rift to date, following Facebooks acquisition it appears that the virtual reality platform will be moving in other directions, as well.
