Nate Mitchell leaves Oculus, the Facebook subsidiary. He says to take time for himself and his family. Mitchell was co-founder of Oculus and after the Facebook takeover, he worked there as head of product management for virtual reality.
Nate MitchellMitchell announces his departure on Reddit. It does not seem that the Oculus Ceo immediately starts working for another company; in the statement he writes to take time for himself, his family and to travel. He also says that what the future brings is unknown. He gives no reason for his departure from Facebook.
Now that Mitchell is leaving the company, all the original founders of Oculus have disappeared from the company. At the end of last year the former Oculus CEO Brendan Iribe left , allegedly due to disagreement about the development of hardware. Facebook would have deleted a Rift 2 with better specifications for the PC and Iribe did not agree with that.
Palmer Luckey, co-founder and designer of the Oculus Rift left Facebook in 2017 . His departure followed a fuss about money that Luckey would have invested in an organization whose goal was to discourage presidential candidate Hillary Clinton.
Oculus and Facebook have not yet responded to Mitchell’s departure. It is not known who will be his successor. Earlier this year Oculus released its stand sunglasses Quest and the Rift S. The latter is an improved version of the original Rift.
