Notch Cancels Minecraft For Oculus Rift, Says Facebook Is Creepy

Notch Cancels Minecraft For Oculus Rift, Says Facebook is Unstable and Creepy(Ping! Zine Web Tech Magazine) – Those who were looking forward to playing Minecraft on the Oculus Rift are going to be a bit disappointed seeing as how the game’s designer called of the deal.

Following the announcement on Tuesday afternoon that Facebook had acquired the virtual reality gaming company, Minecraft game designer Markus “Notch” Persson made an announcement of his own via his Twitter page.

“We were in talks about maybe bringing a version of Minecraft to Oculus. I just cancelled that deal. Facebook creeps me out.”

A few hours later he posted in his blog giving detailed information as to why he refuses to work with Facebook, stating that the social media giant’s motives are “unclear and shifting.”

“Their motives are too unclear and shifting, and they haven’t historically been a stable platform. There’s nothing about their history that makes me trust them, and that makes them seem creepy to me.”

All hope is not lost though, as Minecraft will be making its way to the PS4, where Notch could decide to develop a Minecraft version for Sony’s Project Morpheus headset.
