(Reuters) – VR headset maker Oculus co-founder Brendan Trexler Iribe is leaving Facebook Inc (NASDAQ:), according to his post on the social media network on Monday.
Oculus, which makes Oculus Rift and Gear VR headsets, was acquired by Facebook in 2014 for $3 billion.
In 2016, Facebook reassigned Iribe, who had been Oculus’ chief executive, to head development of virtual reality tools for PCs.
Iribe’s departure follows the exits of Instagram co-founders Kevin Systrom and Mike Krieger last month.
WhatsApp co-founders Jan Koum and Brian Acton have also left the company.
