    Rift 3.  It's so advanced they skipped v2.

    Or maybe just Santa Cruz   :(


    Which, actually, i will be very excited about and i definitely want one.

    I would like to see rift 2 Maybe accessories? Do you think if we get to see Rift 2 do you think they will drop the price of rift CV1?

    Probably but remember Rift 2 will be more expensive - maybe around the same as the original Rift.  Might keep the same sensors though.

    Maybe they'll bring out a wireless add-on for CV1?  That would be very nice.

    Yes wireless would be good, hopefully if they do Rift 2 with the same sensors they might sell the HMD separate instead buying the full set up again?

    Yep, i'd certainly hope so.  Might be the same for Touch controllers too.  Even if they bring out slightly modified ones, will you be able to use the original Touch?  Could be good to keep the price down.

    I think there will be an announcement that CV2 is in development but I do not think that will be a release in the next year.

    More likely timeline:

    1) OC5: Announcement of CV2 starting development.
    2) Some convention (Or even F8 2019) Further development updates.
    3) OC6: CV2 revealed like Oculus Go was in 2017
    4) F8 2019: CV2 released.

    If they do announce this I can start saving for the next generation.

    Interesting time line @Chump_Change - but I wonder for the CV2 if FB would want OVR to go down the same "questionable" development path in favour of a brand new approach to the business model?

    Remember CV1 has not achieved the sales penetration that they originally set for themselves, let alone the market - so going for a brand new approach with a different focus may be the best plan of action. I do agree at late 2019 release could be a perfect window for the CV2 however - but I wonder if OVR would consider doing a "bundled" system approach - kinda like making their own Mac for VR?

    Just adding on:

    1) OC5: Announcement of CV2 starting development.
    2) OC5: Reveal of the SC headset
    3) Some convention (Or even F8 2019) Further development updates.
    4) OC6: CV2 revealed like Oculus Go was in 2017
    5) F8 2019: CV2 released.

    Those timelines don't make any sense. Unless you both mean F8 2020? Otherwise those timelines mean that the CV2 is going to be revealed at OC6 (September/October 2019) and released at F8 three or four months before it's revealed. :o

    Developers have now got dev kits for the Santa Cruz so I'd say it's a safe bet that it's going to be released during OC5 this year if not before.
