Yesterday, Mojang founder and Minecraft creator Markus “notch” Persson expressed his disapproval of the deal that saw Facebook purchase Oculus for $ 2 billion. Persson, who backed the Oculus Kickstarter at the $ 10,000 level said that he was canceling plans for Minecraft on the platform because “Facebook creeps me out.”
In response, Razer CEO Min-Liang Tan reached out to Persson via Twitter. “Perhaps we can help out,” he writes. “Will be in touch.”
At CES, Razer unveiled plans for a modular computing system and a wearable with two OLED screens. It’s not out of the realm of possibility that that the company is considering (or is already in development with) its own VR project. We’ve reached out to Razer for clarification and will update should we receive a response.
Razer seems a likely suspect to join the VR race. With VR taking off and the company’s motion-based Hydra controller already in use for some head-mounted display input solutions, I wouldn’t be the least bit surprised for Tan and company to announce its own plans.
