Oculus picks up Halo art director to head '1st-party content team'

Oculus VR has picked up another industry veteran, this time from the Halo series. Halo 4 senior art director Kenneth Scott has joined Oculus, in order to build first-party content for the device.

Oculus announced the hire on Twitter (via IGN), saying, "Ken is building our 1st-party content team!" Scott left 343 Industries to be with his family, after his wife (programmer Corrinne Yu) took a job at Naughty Dog.

The company has picked up former talent from id Software and Valve, so it's turning into quite the who's-who of established developers. Scott's influence will probably still be seen in the next Halo game.
