News of the Oculus-Facebook
buyout may have saddened gamers -- including Minecraft
maestro Markus "Notch
" Persson -- but EVE Online
is taking the corporate high road.
The company, which is polishing a virtual reality action title called EVE: Valkyrie
that will be co-published by Oculus, put a positive spin on the future of the Rift without mentioning the $2 billion Facebook acquisition. "We're very excited for our friends and colleagues at Oculus," CCP told Engadget. "We share their vision about the future of VR and gaming and are looking forward to participating in the consumer launch of the Oculus Rift with Eve: Valkyrie
CCP announced at last week's GDC that Valkyrie will also appear on the PlayStation 4
in conjunction with Sony's Project Morpheus initiative.
