Minecraft on Oculus Rift Might Just Happen, Notch No Longer Upset About Facebook Deal

Back when the news hit that social media giant Facebook acquired Oculus RiftMinecraft creator Markus “Notch” Persson was quick to voice his frustration with the news. He was so “creeped out” by the idea of Facebook owning the VR company that he pulled out of early talks about potentially porting Minecraft to the Oculus Rift.

It seems that Notch has had a change of heart since then and has tweeted that he is “over being upset” about the Facebook/Oculus debacle.

Obviously this leads to the question of whether or not we will eventually see Minecraft on the Oculus Rift. Notch later tweeted that it would be up to the Minecraft dev team whether we ever get to experience Minecraft in full, virtual-reality glory.

Whether it does end up happening or not, John Carmack, Chief Technology Officer over at Oculus VR was quick to assure Notch that he would fully support an Oculus Rift version of Minecraft:

Only time will tell whether or not we’ll actually be able to experience Minecraft on the Oculus Rift. Until then, we’ll all just have to settle for sitting really, really close to our respective monitors in the hopes that it comes somewhat close to virtual reality.
