The world is full of surprises. The world of virtual reality is full of uncertainties and queer things even more. Markus “Notch” Persson, a father of Minecraft, was earlier much talked about due to his sharp critics of Facebook’s acquisition of Oculus Rift. He expressed such deep concerns and regrets about the event that a lot of people hesitated the successful future of Oculus. Nevertheless, Oculus seems to prosper further and Mr.Persson is likely to change his mind.
The evidence of it may be his tweet posted a few days ago where he indicates he is not disappointed about the aforementioned acquisition any more.
“And about now I’m officially over being upset about Facebook buying Oculus. I’m upset about there being a hole in my favorite sock instead.”
It didn’t take much time for Oculus to respond on this capitulating tweet. John Carmack, a Chief Technical Officer in Oculus VR, offered help in developing a VR version of Minecraft. “Say the word, ship the source, and I’ll make sure it runs well on you-know-what…” he wrote.
Answering the question whether Minecraft will deal with Rift, Markus Persson said the whole Minecraft development team would take a final decision.
Given this you may think virtual Minecraft will appear in the nearest future. Slow down, there’s a possibity of Persson only joking:))) Moreover, the game development is a long process and it takes much time to settle all the disputable questions.
This spring Persson was so angry with the deal between Facebook and Oculus that even rejected a deal aimed at developing a Minecraft version for Rift. His decision was motivated by the persuasion that “Facebook is not a company of grass-roots tech enthusiasts” and the whole company’s history is only a history of growing number of users.
