Over the last few months, there has been some controversy surrounding games on the Oculus Rift. This is that the company has been blocking its titles from being ported to another VR headset.
Today, Oculus announced that they are shutting down this DRM, allowing games from the Oculus Rift to be played on one of the biggest competitor headsets, the HTC Vive.
This comes after Oculus blocked a program called Revive from working with the Vive headset, which some claimed to be against what the Oculus founder said in the past.
Today, the company has confirmed that the lock has been removed and that it will not be re-introduced in the future.
They confirmed this to Ars Technica, where they stated the following:
“We believe protecting developer content is critical to the long-term success of the VR industry, and we’ll continue taking steps in the future to ensure that VR developers can keep investing in ground-breaking new VR content.”
