So far, the company has only released developer prototypes and has continuously delayed the release date for the consumer version. Last year, Luckey said something would have to go 'horribly wrong' for the Rift to not come out this year, but he changed his tune at the recent SXSW: "I did say that, before we made a lot of changes to our roadmap," which included setting a higher target quality level for the consumer device.
VP of Product Nate Mitchell added that with "the Rift, our team wants to launch this as soon as we possibly can, but with no compromises."
For consumers who cannot wait, the Gear VR will be out this year - a VR headset built as part of a partnership with Samsung.
