Oculus co-founder Palmer Luckey is leaving the company just three years after selling it to Facebook.

According to Oculus’ official statement, this is Plamer’s last week as an employee at Facebook.

In an official statement, the company said that:

“Palmer will be dearly missed. Palmer’s legacy extends far beyond Oculus. His inventive spirit helped kickstart the modern VR revolution and helped build an industry. We’re thankful for everything he did for Oculus and VR, and we wish him all the best.”

Facebook declines to comment if the departure was voluntary or not, citing a policy of not discussing internal personnel matters.
