A judge has awarded ZeniMax and id Software half a billion dollars after an ongoing lawsuit against Oculus, where the court found that Oculus and its founder, Palmer Luckey, did violate a non-disclosure agreement. It was also deemed that Oculus VR was not guilty of misappropriating trade secrets, which ZeniMax had alleged in the same lawsuit.
