Halo art director joins Oculus VR

Fri 16 May 2014 7:46am GMT / 3:46am EDT / 12:46am PDT

Update: And now Google's Adrian Wong is on board too


Adrian Wong is the latest recruit to Oculus VR's army, bringing with him experience of working with Google's most cutting-edge product, Google Glass.

Wong has been quiet about the move except for a post on Facebook.

"Surprise! Today is my last day at Google. Three rollercoaster years with Google[x] and Glass. What amazing memories. Now, time for the next great adventure!"

Original story

Kenneth Scott, the art director on Halo 4, has swapped 343 Industries for the same role at Oculus VR where he'll concentrate on first party content for the popular virtual reality headset.

Scott previously spent six years with 343 Industries and prior to that 10 with id Software.

If you're thinking that everyone in the industry has now quit their jobs to work on Oculus Rift, you're not far off the mark. Valve VR veterans Atman Binstock and Michael Abrash,Aaron Nicholls and id Software's John Carmack and Matt Hooper are just a handful of those that have joined the company in the last year.

Well last time I looked Oculus didn't make games so this doesn't exactly make any sense unless he'll be doing marketing assets....

Actually it makes perfect sense.
A first party content team staffed by industry veterans with internal access to the tech., aiming to create the killer game that elevates OR from a cool toy to the next must have.
Beats shipping dev kits then sitting back hoping someone else will do it for them..

Indeed - Oculus is completely staffing up to make games. Just like any "console" maker, when you bring out a new piece of hardware it's important to show off its capabilities and who better to do that than in-house development staff
