Pre-orders for Oculus Rift Open in Early 2016

Oculus VR’s highly anticipated virtual reality headset will be open for pre-order soon. Founder Palmer Luckey calls the headset on-track for its scheduled Q1 2016 launch; pre-orders are expected to go live in the coming weeks.

In a follow-up, Luckey assures fans pre-orders won’t come without ample warning.

The Oculus Rift began with a Kickstarter in 2012. Since its first Development Kit, Oculus VR has gone through a second Development Kit and various prototypes. Plans for a Rift 2 are already in motion, and the successor to the unreleased headset is currently being worked on.

2016 is shaping up to a big year for virtual reality from the Oculus Rift to the PlayStation VR. If you’re looking for a virtual reality fix now, the Samsung Gear VR released earlier this year for compatible Samsung devices.
