Horizon

Does anyone have any idea/info on when Facebook Horizon is due for release/Beta testing?

I signed up when it was announced, but since then I've not heard a thing.

I think that in the current climate this would be a great way to keep people connected and increase VR adoption.

    I am betting on September along with the announcement they are launching a new HMD to go with it. They may feel forced to bring out at least some teaser information sooner rather than later because of the HP launch.

    I think they will be tying the two together in a single launch, so they wont want people using other headsets on it before that or giving out spoilers with beta testing videos.

    Oculus are pretty tight lipped though so who knows?

    Let's just hope that using Horizon isn't somehow tied to purchasing a new headset :p

    Since I'll be using my Quest using Link, I wont need a new headset. Looks like Horizon will be available as PCVR using the Rift and Rift S.

    It will be usable on most headsets no doubt but for launch they probably want to release both at the same time for a bigger impact.
