Meta’s CTO of VR consulting is leaving the company, urging the company to “make better decisions” and “don’t give a damn.”

Meta’s VR consulting CTO John Carmack is leaving the company after “a decade in VR” and accusing the company of “self-sabotage”.

Seen in an internal note by Business InsiderCarmack criticized the company’s “efficiency,” adding that while Quest 2 “is almost exactly what [he] wanted to see” with its “mobile hardware, inside-out tracking, optional PC streaming, 4K(ish) software,” he was “offended” to see a “5 percent GPU utilization number in production.”

“We have a ridiculous amount of people and resources, but we’re constantly self-sabotaging and wasting our efforts,” Carmack – who helped create the Doom and Quake franchises – said in the leaked memo. “There is no way to sugarcoat this; I think our organization operates at half the efficiency that would make me happy.

“It was a struggle for me. I have a top-level voice here, so it feels like I should be able to move things, but I’m obviously not convincing enough. A good chunk of things I end up complaining about I turn around after a year or two and the evidence is piling up, but I’ve never been able to kill stupid things before they do any harm, or any direction to pretend and actually have a team stick to it. I think my influence on the fringes has been positive, but it’s never been a driving force.”

He concluded by saying he was “tired of the fight” but asked the team to “make better decisions and fill.” [their] Products with ‘damn'”.

“VR can bring value to most people in the world, and no company is better positioned to do that than Meta,” he concluded. “Maybe it’s actually possible to get there simply by advancing current practices, but there’s a lot of room for improvement.”
