In some of the first news since Oculus was acquired by Facebook, Chief Executive Brendan Iribe confirmed that a new prototype is “coming soon”. Furthermore, he clarified that the process should be much faster now that they have Facebook’s funding behind them
Iribe had some more things to say about his deal with Facebook: “centered around being able to leverage their cash and investment into hardware R&D, which is expensive.” the idea is that with Facebook, Oculus will remain just as independent and centered, but “doing it even bigger, faster.”
He ended the note explaining that developers have nothing to fear, as the intimacy is meant to remain intact, and furthermore, “they’ll have more success shipping their content into a platform that has a billion users rather than a hundred million”.
