Facebook kills VR headset Oculus Go, opens Quest for developers

0 159

Facebook has announced to discontinue its entry-level VR headset Oculus Go. Following a price drop to $149, the social network major has officially ended Oculus Go that was launched two years ago.

“We’ll end sales of Oculus Go headsets this year as we double down on improving our offerings for VR platforms Quest and Rift,” the company said in a statement.

If you own an Oculus Go headset, you’ll still be able to use it even after sales of Oculus Go end.

“We’ll also continue to maintain the system software with bug fixes and security patches through 2022,” said Facebook.

Facebook said it won’t be shipping new features for Oculus Go moving forward, and no longer accept new Oculus Go apps or app updates into the Store after December 4, 2020.

“We’ll stop adding new Go apps into the Store after December 18,” said Facebook.

Oculus Quest has redefined the VR category, with full head and hand movement powered by the Insight tracking system.

Quest enabled incredible VR games like Beat Saber, Dance Central and The Climb with the freedom of an untethered experience, plus access to high-powered PC games like Asgard’s Wrath and Stormland through Oculus Link.

People have spent more than $100 million on Quest content and more than 10 titles have generated over $2 million in revenue on Quest.

“We’re excited to announce that in early 2021, we’ll offer a new way for developers to distribute Quest apps. This will enable developers to share their apps to anyone with a Quest, without having to be accepted into the Oculus Store, and without the need for sideloading,” informed Facebook.
