Notch Cancels Oculus Rift Version of Minecraft Because Facebook “Creeps” Him Out
No sooner do we get the (shocking) news that Facebook buys VR company Oculus then Minecraft creator Markus “Notch” Persson tweets that he has cancelled the planned Oculus version of the game.
Here is what he had to tweet:
We were in talks about maybe bringing a version of Minecraft to Oculus. I just cancelled that deal. Facebook creeps me out.

Minecraft is Notch’s game so it is ultimately up to him on whether it does or does not come out for any particular platform. This is a bit disappointing seeing as how that game would have really shined using the Oculus Rift.
Stay tuned for more news on this and the Facebook acquisition of Oculus VR as it develops.
