Newsbrief: Oculus VR already snapped up a couple of Valve veterans last month -- and today the company said that it has hired yet another Valve developer to help steer its virtual reality business in the right direction.

The company has announced the addition of Aaron Nicholls to its team. Nicholls has previously worked as a developer at Valve for the last four years, and in particular is known for his research into virtual reality tech.

This follows the news that Oculus has hired both Atman Binstock, Valve's lead VR engineer, and Michael Abrash, another big name in VR at Valve. Nicholls took to Twitter to say that he "can't wait to continue working on the future with Atman, Michael, and the Oculus crew tomorrow."

Good news for Oculus. I hope it doesn't mean they're burning their bridges with Valve by pulling all this talent off of them. The collaboration between the two companies was cool to see.

I imagine their departures stem from Valve not being big enough into the idea for them. Valve undoubtedly has its plate full with Steam Universe/L4D3/Source 2/whatever else.

I'm sure the departure was mutual as well, Valve isn't the kind of company to hold grudges on who stays and who leaves.
