Palmer Luckey has been in the headlines for years, as the co-founder of the first real VR headset: the Oculus Rift. Luckey has been embroiled in scandals for a while now, and will be officially leaving Facebook, which acquired Oculus a few years ago in a deal worth $2 billion.
UploadVR reports: "Palmer will be dearly missed. Palmer's legacy extends far beyond Oculus. His inventive spirit helped kickstart the modern VR revolution and helped build an industry. We're thankful for everything he did for Oculus and VR and wish him the best".
Luckey hasn't had much luck in the public eye recently, as the two most recent appearances by the Oculus co-founder have been to apologize for his contribution of spreading controversial memes, and then to testify in the legal case between ZeniMax and Oculus. Facebook wouldn't state whether Luckey left voluntarily, so maybe he was removed from the company after all this time.
