Hot on the heels of John Carmack joining the Oculus Rift team, another id Software veteran has gone over to work on the VR device. Matt Hooper, creative director on Rage, is now the director of development at the Oculus Rift office.

Hooper didn't swap id for Oculus, though, as he actually left the company about six months ago. GameFront reports that id has been notably tight-lipped about Hooper's departure, refusing to comment on it recently at QuakeCon.

"We are thrilled to have Matt Hooper join the Oculus VR team as our Director of Development," read a statement from Oculus VR. "Hooper will be working out of the Dallas, TX office. He's a top talent who had been out of id for a few months and ended up being a great fit for the Oculus team. We're looking for more all-stars!"
