This came as a surprise to me, but I can understand that he wants to focus on VR.

From his tweet " I wanted to remain a technical adviser for Id, but it just didn't work out. Probably for the best, as the divided focus was challenging"

It looks more like Id wanted him to leave rather then he wanted to leave. I really hope he does quakecon

Why would he need to find another job? Isn't the Rift consumer version going to make a $1b? Sure he'd get a cut of that.

I didn't think there was enough programming to keep him there for a super long time. 2b? Hope so, but i don't know.
