In wake of the major announcement last week that not only would HTC and Valve be teaming up to release their own VR headset, but would be releasing a consumer version this holiday season. Those developers who are working with the HTC Vive headsets have released information online through social media, blog posts, and emails giving the VR a community a glimpse into what they have in store. Now, a successful Kickstarter campaign by Untold Games sent out an update mentioning that “something tells [them] we should have updates pretty soon” in regards to upcoming consumer ready devices including those manufactured by Oculus and Sony. Untold Games even slapped a big high-resolution image of the Vive VR headset at the front of the post. Speculation leads us to think they know something more than most.
Here’s the post in question:
