Oculus denies John Carmack stole VR tech from his former employer

As it appeared recently, the Oculus VR hasn’t been dealing so well with the recent incident involving their Chief Technology Officer John Carmack . The employee bears the accusation of stealing intellectual property for use in his new gig and following this uproar, the nascent Facebook subsidiary merely stated that "It's unfortunate, but when there's this type of transaction, people come out of the woodwork with ridiculous and absurd claims. We intend to vigorously defend Oculus and its investors to the fullest extent."

However this statement made earlier has now been expanded as of today and it kind of pushes back on the claims made by Zenimax. The Oculus statement goes like "We are disappointed, but not surprised by Zenimax's actions and we will prove that all of its claims are false" and this statement was followed by a list of points which were there to refute the accusations made by Zenimax. One point stated that "There is not a line of Zenimax code or any of its technology in any Oculus products" while the second highlight from the list of points states that "Zenimax did not pursue claims against Oculus for IP or technology, Zenimax has never contributed any IP or technology to Oculus, and only after the Facebook deal was announced has Zenimax now made these claims through its lawyers."

As far as the history of Zenimax working with Palmer Luckey on VR is concerned, the Oculus statements have also managed to shed some light on what has been happening in this area for the past couple of years and it was stated that "A key reason that John permanently left Zenimax in August of 2013 was that Zenimax prevented John from working on VR, and stopped investing in VR games across the company."
