ZeniMax, the owner of game studios Bethestha Softworks and id Software has been awarded $500 million around £400 million by a jury in its lawsuit against Oculus Virtual Reality and its parent company, Facebook, according to Polygon.

Facebook purchased Oculus VR in 2014 for $2 billion.

After deliberating for two and a half days, the jury concluded Oculus did not appropriate Zenimax s trade secrets.

According to Polygon, Oculus is paying out $200 million of the $500 million judgement for breaking the NDA, and another $50 million for copyright infringement.

Oculus founder Palmer Luckey and Oculus will each have to pay $50 million for false designation.

Brendan Iribie, the former CEO, is also ordered to pay $150 million for false designation.
