Facebook has announced today that its 2019 iteration of its yearly conference will take place on April 30th and May 1st. Facebook is the company behind the Oculus VR platform and headsets.
Oculus has said that Quest will launch in “Spring 2019”. Given that F8 2019 will fall within Spring, and that Oculus Go was launched at the last F8, it seems fairly likely that this is when Quest will be launched.
Go’s release was not preceded by any preorders or prior announcement. The headset simply had an “early 2018” release window, and was launched at F8. If Quest receives the same treatment, we likely won’t hear anything concrete until then either.
What we do expect before then however is a launch games lineup event. When Quest was announced in September, Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg stressed that it would launch with other 50 titles. We haven’t seen the majority of those officially listed yet.
