Oculus Shuts Down VR Short-Film Division



Well some unfortunate news has came through that Oculus has shut down their Emmy-Winning VR short film division. Jason Rubin has stated that "In the same way we invested in the third-party game developers who made the incredible content lineups for Rift and Gear VR, we're going to allocate more resources to third-party creatives to build out the VR storytelling library," Rubin writes. That sentence spells out a strategy of buying up and securing exclusive rights to other studios' VR story projects—which will surely ruffle feathers and inspire more rogue installations of compatibility-opening software such as Revive.
