John Carmack Speaking to Mojang on Minecraft for Gear VR

VRFocus - Many will remember the now infamous Minecraft incident that surrounded the news of Oculus VR’s $2 billion USD acquisition by Facebook earlier in the year. Shortly after the deal was announced Markus ‘Notch’ Persson, the creator of the beloved series, announced that he had cancelled plans for a virtual reality (VR) version of Minecraft running on the Oculus Rift head-mounted display (HMD). Persson specifically cited the deal as the reason for the cancellation. Of course, the developer is no longer responsible for the franchise and it seems like members of Oculus VR are still keen to see it on the VR device.

The story is too old to be commented.

Seems like a match made in heaven. Walking around in a world you built & fighting creepers in VR would be a blast, and a system seller.

I wouldn't buy a MS platform just to play it. But if they offer VR support to existing users, then huge thumbs up from me!

Its weird to think that at a base level Facebook is asking Microsoft about making VR Minecraft.

I dont see microsoft refusing to put it on oculus rift. It will help to sell the device a microsoft can make back money they spent on it
