Former Oculus CEO Brendan Iribe leaves Facebook

Former Oculus CEO and co-founder Brendan Iribe has left the company.

Iribe founded the company along with Palmer Luckey, Michael Antonov and Nate Mitchell back in 2012.

The Kickstarter campaign the company led back then raised $2.4 million and reignited the virtual reality industry - a sector that’s still fighting on today with major multi-million/billion dollar deals.

Oculus itself was acquired by Facebook for 2014 in for $2 billion - a figure that was later revealed to be $3bn based on company targets and retaining key staff.
