Several potential Quest successors are under development, Bloomberg reports, including some that are smaller, lighter and have a faster refresh rate; it’s not final which new version will be released.
The new Quest was set to be launched around Oculus Connect at the end of 2020, but supply-chain problems and other issues could delay shipping into 2021.
It’s the midrange offering from Oculus. The current Quest is $399, cheaper than the high-end Rift S but better than the entry-level Oculus Go.
The company’s also building an augmented reality headset, though the virus has slowed hardware development there as well. It had been planned for a 2023 launch.
