Mojang Won’t Support Oculus Rift After Facebook Deal

Hot on the heels of Facebook announcing that it would acquire Oculus, Minecraft maker Mojang announced that it has canceled talks to support the technology in its popular world building game. Mojang's Markus "Notch" Persson said that he is canceling talks for an upcoming official version of Minecraft for the Oculus Rift.

"We were in talks about maybe bringing a version of Minecraft to Oculus," Persson tweeted shortly after the announcement on Tuesday. "I just cancelled that deal. Facebook creeps me out."

A Minecraft port for the Rift would have brought some major attention to the technology. It will be interesting to see how other developers who previously vowed to support the technology will react to this deal with Facebook.

We'll have more on this story as it develops.
