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."

releasing the Oculus Quest(their new standalone headset) next year. After that, we'll start hearing about the next thing they have for pc vr users.


Exactly how do you know that? Don't get me wrong, I'd love for it to be true, it's just going to take more than that.

I've owned everything from two DK2's to a Vive and a CV1, and am planning on buying a Vive Pro headset for Christmas if funds allow. So yeah, I love VR. I know it's expensive, but I prioritise this stuff (escapism is big for me). I don't make a lot of money but I don't go on holidays and I don't have kids. This is what I do.

The CV1 is every bit as good as the Vive, and to that end I'm gutted Oculus seem to be going the mobile route. Not that I can't understand it, but I wouldn't be surprised if we never do end up seeing a Rift 2 for PC
