Valve's Nicholls joins Oculus VR

Follows Abrash and joins the R&D team in Bellevue

Valve's Aaron Nicholls is the latest addition to the Oculus VR team, joining its R&D team in Bellevue.

Oculus VR and Nicholls announced the news on Twitter.

Last night Nicholls added "moves like this are always a little scary, but I'm very excited and can't wait to start in the morning."

Nicholls joined Valve from Microsoft where he had worked on Windows and Gears of War, Halo 3, and Jade Empire. At Valve he focused on gameplay, design, and system work.

Just last week Oculus VR tempted Valve VR specialist Michael Abrash away to be its chief scientist.

Oculus VR recently made the news with its $2 billion acquisition by Facebook.
