The Oculus Quest 2 from Facebook has reached number 1 in the steam charts for most used VR headset. This leaves a good chance for a successor of the throne and it's got everyone asking the question, "What is the release date for Oculus Quest 3?".
The big CEO of Facebook Mark Zuckerberg stated in a earnings call not too long ago, "the company is still working on new hardware as well. The new hardware will kind of fit the same platform." The Zucks also said Facebook is wanting "content compatible with the Oculus Quest 2 should have forward compatibility," implying their plans to generate more Virtual Reality headsets very soon.
Oculus Quest 3 Release Date
First things first is the possible hint of the Oculus Quest Pro headset that might be on its way... courtesy of Facebook's VP of Augmented Reality and Virtual Reality. The Quest 2 was released in fall of 2020, so it'd be too soon for a 2021 release date of the Oculus Quest 3. The beauty of the Quest line is it's constant updates and improvements of functionality, which gives the current Quest 2 plenty of life left in it. Arguably the biggest update to the Quest 2 is the recent 120Hz refresh rate update. Aside from the battery life, the Quest 2 is still one of, if not the biggest VR contenders on the market.
