It looks like Oculus is going to be coming to ol' Blighty in a big way, with the company in preparations to open up a dedicated base in London with the aim of making some "really cool stuff" for virtual reality.

It's parent company Facebook already has a big presence here in the UK but this Oculus specific hub says a lot about Facebook's intentions in VR.

Based on some Facebook comments (seriously) the team will be lead by Mike LeBeau. Lebeau hails from Google and moved to the UK to join Oculus in January. The Telegraph has noted that there's been a lot of LinkedIn and social media activity that indicates Oculus is due to expand its presence here in the UK. Good find Telegraph.

We've reached out to Oculus for comment and will update the story if we get a response. The Telegraph also had a crack with Oculus's response merely being "We'll have more to share on our international plans soon." The big teases.

This means there's also no word yet on what the team might be working on, whether it's one of Oculus's existing initatives or an entirely new, and dare I say, top secret project. We'll keep an eye on it, and let you know if there's anything exciting.
