Rift 2 Cancelled?

A post on Facebook from Brendan Iribe announces the departure of one of the Oculus founders from the company. He speaks with pride about what they've accomplished as virtual reality pioneers, and speaks optimistically about the future. A report on TechCrunch says there's more to this, saying his departure was precipitated by a shakeup at Facebook last week that included the cancellation of a next-generation Rift 2 headset. They say Iribe had been heading up development, but that he and Facebook management developed "fundamentally different views on the future of Oculus that grew deeper over time." The development of a Rift sequel or its cancellation are unconfirmed, but their response from Facebook did not deny either, offering assurances that they do plan another headset at some point. "While we canít comment on our product roadmap specifics," they were told. "We do have future plans, and can confirm that we are planning for a future version of Rift."

Had to go check other places, it is said not to be, so now we'll have to wait and see over this period.

Whatever happens and if the Rift is cancelled it doesn't mean VR is dead. But lets say it is, I still have this cool headset that is amazing and there is a lot of software now and that cannot be taken away.

Those that poo poo it and never gave it a fair shake, go ahead and grow old like your parents, it never threatened your amazing today. VR is fresh and if developed would just get better and better and possibly to a level even you could enjoy. There isn't a winner if VR just ends, it just one less offering to experience, it's a loss.
