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.

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.The first Oculus Rift headset is yet to be released on the consumer market, but the company has already sold over 85,000 dev kits.
