- Six months after stepping down from his virtual reality company Oculus, Palmer Luckey’s revealed he’s still working in the industry.
- Luckey left his position at Oculus in March of this year in the wake of news that he’d been helping fund the alt-right “shitposting” group Nimble America, a move that brought him intense scrutiny from the press and game industry.
- Luckey also announced he has a new VR company, though he didn’t announce any real specifics, only saying that he is working on “some very exciting things.”
- Aside from this brief bit of news, Luckey’s appearance was more formal with general interview with HTC and talk about the company’s position in VR industry.HTC recently renewed its interest in supporting its Vive headset thanks to a $1.1 billion deal with Google.
- It stands to reason this push back into VR might have led the company to partner up with one of the industry’s most recognizable figures.Luckey first gained public attention back in 2012 when he ran a successful Kickstarter to begin prototyping his Oculus Rift headset.
