The Oculus Rift will be officially on pre order in 2016

Oculus Rift - Samsung

VR has picked up big time since it was first proposed as an idea few years ago. We’re now seeing an increasing number of companies who are invested in the concept and even have some products in the market.

But the one company that started it all and perhaps had the most recognition in the VR field was Oculus, which was later acquired by Facebook. While developer units of Oculus Rift have been available for quite some time now, it hasn’t quite gone mainstream yet.

However, that’s about to change with the company now offering a 2016 release/pre order timeframe for the customers, which means that this VR product will be in stores or markets by sometime early next year. It is said that the pre orders will officially kick off in early 2016 with a release probably scheduled for the first quarter of 2016.

That means the wait might not be much longer for the customers and that the users will most definitely get to experience Oculus Rift before mid-2016. The company has reassured its fans that production is running smoothly and that they’re well prepared for the big launch next year.
