"We're not worried."


GameSpot recently sat down with Jason Rubin, VP of content at Oculus, to discuss--amongst other things--its legal battle with Zenimax over rights to the Oculus Rift.

When asked directly about how the $500 million settlement would impact the future of the business, Rubin was tight-lipped, referring twice to a quote from Oculus COO Sheryl Sandberg, who said, "It will not materially impact our business."

"I joined the company after all of the circumstances that are being discussed happened so I have zero insight on any of that," said Rubin. "I have been blessed being at Facebook to not focus on any of that stuff. So, to be honest, you probably know more than I do because I have been focused on content and focused on driving VR into the marketplace."

When pushed on the subject, Rubin again quoted Sandberg.

On the subject of the second suit filed by Zenimax last week--an injunction to halt the sale of products created using what it believes to be stolen code--Rubin was similarly tight lipped and confident, offering only the quip, "We're not worried."

Oculus also dropped a major announcement today, revealing a price drop for the Rift and Touch controller.
