Start saying goodbye to Oculus Quest and Rift S

Start saying goodbye to Oculus Quest and Rift S

Facebook is streamlining its line of virtual reality headsets down to just one product. Soon, the Quest 2, the successor to the Oculus Quest, will be the only headset sold by the company.

As noted at Oculus Connect on Wednesday, Facebook will stop selling the Rift S virtual reality headset in spring 2021, and will also discontinue production of the original Oculus Quest this year, leaving only Quest 2 in the marketplace. The Quest 2 will be sold for $299.99 or $399.99, depending on the amount of storage.

Quest product manager Rangaprabhu Parthasarathy told Report Door that the company “will transition to making this headset, the Quest 2, the centerpiece, the best of both worlds of both PC VR, and all in one, however you use it.”

“But if you want PC VR, just plug in a compatible USB cable, and you’re in the world of PC VR gaming,” Parthasarathy continued. “We think this is the best solution for customers.”

Facebook’s streamlining of its virtual reality offerings will certainly make things easier for players. If you want an Oculus headset after next spring, you will only have one choice: Quest 2.
