Last month Facebook announced that they would buy Oculus Rift maker Oculus VR in a deal which is worth around $2 billion.
Oculus Rift started out as a Kickstarter project, and the company has come under quite a bit of criticism after announcing the Facebook deal, with some game makers pulling out of the project.
Now Oculus VR CEO Palmer Luckey has confirmed that you will not need Facebook to use Oculus Rift, in a recent interview with Maximum PC.
He also explained that the Facebook deal has given them more resources to develop the platform further, and Facebook is letting the Oculus team continue on their original path.
Oculus Rift will continue with an Open SDK, and there will also be no Facebook branding on the device, so basically, according to the Oculus VR CEO, the only change is that they have cash behind them to accelerate the development of the platform.
