Move over E3; Oculus just announced the return of its developer conference, Oculus Connect, coming back now for its fifth year.
Oculus Connect 5 will run on September 26th and 27th at the McEnery Convention Center in San Jose. This year’s show promises to celebrate the last five years of VR, though technically it will have only been four years since the event started in 2014. But, hey, who’s counting?
To be fair, Oculus has been around for longer than its Connect conferences, and it’s hard to believe it’s been even four years since the first one, in which it debuted the Crescent Bay prototype that laid the foundations for the consumer Rift.
You can also expect an in-depth look at the future at this year’s show. Oculus has a lot on its plate right now having just launched its Go standalone device and continuing work on another, more advanced standalone codenamed Santa Cruz. At parent company Facebook’s F8 conference in April we also saw the latest prototypes from Oculus’ PC VR team, suggesting that we’re on the path for the true successor to the Oculus Rift.
We’ll of course be at Oculus Connect 5 to bring you all the latest from the event.
