This subject came up a lot of times on the internet and while there were some speculations around, nothing was official or certain. Today we got our confirmations, as Oculus VR company CEO Brendan Iribe said that “It’s official. We’re building a platform.”.
“Jason Holtman recently joined to run platform. He’s going to be largely leading the overall platform strategy around building out the ecosystem and the developer relations with Aaron and publishing with DeMartini.” States Iribe revealed in an interview with Venturebeat.
“There’s a lot of engineering around that… Jason’s background comes from Valve, running Steam and evangelizing Steam to third-party developers over eight years or so. It’s great to get the person who built Steam to help build our platform [sic].” he continued.
Now that Oculus is a part of the gigantic company Facebook, they sure have the financing and the man power to build it. So, the questions is, will it be good or bad?
