Insomniac, Polytron And More React To 'Oculusgate'
September 24, 2016

In light of recent revelations around Oculus founder Palmer Luckey, several indie developers have spoken out, with some even announcing they will no longer support Oculus Rift.
 
Insomniac Games, currently working on three games for the Oculus Rift, gave IGN the following statement:
 

"Insomniac Games condemns all forms of hate speech. While everyone has a right to express his or her political opinion, the behavior and sentiments reported do not reflect the values of our company. We are also confident that this behavior and sentiment does not reflect the values of the many Oculus employees we work with on a daily basis."
 

Polytron, the studio behind Fez, announced via Twitter it was ending support for Oculus for its upcoming SUPERHYPERCUBE.

"In a political climate as fragile and horrifying as this one, we cannot tacitly endorse these actions by supporting Luckey or his platform," Polytron said in a statement on Pastebin.
 
In addition to Insomniac and Polytron, many other smaller developers have publicly announced their games won't support Oculus Rift, Motherboard reports.
