Are we looking at a possible earlier shipment?

    People keep asking on Reddit if this means that they’ll receive it on the 21st, and Oculus Support keeps answering with the exact same unclear wording. I’m assuming that it will leave Oculus on the 21st, and will be delivered a few days later, depending on how close you are to the distribution centre.

    If it ships earlier, we’ll know because they charge your card and email you a tracking number when it ships.

    Amazon UK state delivery ON the 21st and I think that's the same for Amazon US if you want to go that way.

    Think another clue will be when the app is updated with the quest.

    When I ordered on the Oculus site it said Ships By The 21st. When I came back the next day and looked at my order, it said Ships By The 23rd. Are the extra two days the shipping time, or did they slide my ship date after I bought it?

    21st is the Official Release Date either way.  I don't imagine they want the general public recieving pre-orders before then, but it's possible they could try and time the shipping so that as many people as possible are getting the deliveries on Release Day.

    They'll definitely have them in the back rooms of their retail partners' stores before the 21st,  in case you'd like to try and  preorder one for store pick-up on release day... ... or stage a daring night-time burglary a night or two before? 
    :open_mouth:   

    Merry Riftmas, everybody!

    Could be that when you ordered they were already out of the day 1 stock.

    Why not send them out like a week before so everyone receives the quest by release date.
    The release date is then software unlock day.

    If someone could just point me in that direction    ;)

    Yes mate of course, jump on a flying type airplane, smuggle yourself through customs and get off sneakily in California and saddle your way to Oculus HQ, kidnap an employee then go to their dev HQ and pinch one then reverse your course, piss easy ;)

    I was wondering about this too, so contacted Oculus support and they confirmed that no preorders will be shipped prior to the stated ship date (in my case 21st May) I guess I don’t mind possibly receiving it a couple days later than release day as I’ve ordered it with the case and can’t find this being sold anywhere in UK yet. Amazon UK still as of today says they can deliver on release day. I mentioned this to Oculus but they wouldn’t confirm that Amazon would be able to fulfil that. I have preordered stuff on Amazon before and received them on release day as they shipped them the day before on next day delivery.

    i havce a feeling we will be getting them on the 21st despite what Oculus tells you.

    I'm hoping the Quest will ship a bit earlier than the 21st. As most things that I've preordered you get the item before actual release date. Isn't that the idea of preordering? Best Buy is one that says preorder and pick up on release date so why wait until it ships. Just hoping there is some benifit to preordering. Guess I'm just excited and can't wait. Hopeful here.

    I have pre-ordered at Media Markt (something like the germans Best Buy) and the status says "available by may 20." I think that i can pick up my Quest 64gb by may 20. We will see :)

    Look this is what I am doing. If it comes available sooner than or on the 21st locally I will buy another on and send the one I ordered from the oculus store back. 

    When did your availability date switch to the 20th??

    I just preordered at Media Markt a few days ago. It directly says may 20. My occulus pre-order will go back, if it doesnt arrive on 21 ;) Or maybe a friend will take it if hes hyped after testing the Quest. But i think he will ;D
