Bethesda parent company ZeniMax Media's legal dispute with Oculus VR wouldn't deter the Elder Scrolls firm from making Oculus Rift games, according to PR and marketing vice president Pete Hines.
Asked about the impact the lawsuit has on Bethesda's potential Oculus Rift plans, Hines told CVG: "I don't think that it's an incentive or a deterrent [to make Rift games]. I mean, that situation is what it is.
"We have and will continue to make decisions that we think are in the best interests of our games and our audience." ZeniMax claims Oculus Rift was only made possible through years of its own research and investment. It alleges that former employee and now-Oculus chief technology officer John Carmack stole its property to aid the development of the virtual reality headset. Carmack has publicly derided the claims.
Oculus says Rift does not use a single line of ZeniMax code or technology and "will prove that all of its claims are false". The company has pointed to its recent $2 billion acquisition by Facebook as a likely cause for the legal action.
CVG's interview with Hines also covers upcoming survival horror gameThe Evil Within and the complications that caused the Elder Scrolls Online's recent console delay. http://www.computerandvideogames.com...ng-rift-games/
