Founder of Oculus, Palmer Luckey, Leaves Facebook

Palmer Luckey, the founder of VR firm Oculus, has left the company.

Mr Luckey was closely associated with the rise to prominence of Oculus and its VR headset which finally went on sale in early 2016.

Facebook, which owns Oculus, gave no details about why Mr Luckey left the firm or what he planned to do next.

His departure caps a troubled period for Oculus which lost a $500m (£400m) court case against media firm Zenimax which said it stole trade secrets.

The court case was partly brought about because Zenimax accused Mr Luckey of violating a non-disclosure agreement he signed with the firm in 2014.

Facebook and Oculus have appealed against the damages award.
