Oculus Rift 2 Coming Not Until 2019...

Interesting article today which uses Facebook's Oculus Hardware estimates per year to basically show that the Oculus Rift 2 is not planned for release until 2019.  http://ir.net/news/virtual-reality-headsets/124064/facebook-expects-600k-oculus-rifts-sales-in-2016-...

The graph shows that sales of the Rift will soar through 2017 before falling off in 2018.  Then in 2019 an all-out explosion of hardware sales.  It is expected that Facebook will sell 10 million headsets in 2019 alone and 13 million in 2020.  Thoughts?

Ambitious, but lets have our fingers crossed this turns out to be true. Would really change the gaming that we know today

You sure it's not Oculus Rift CV1 coming in 2019?  😉

So we have 3 years to get awesome new GPUs, I do hope VR becomes a real world phenomena and Nvidia and AMD go all in on delivering the best GPUs they can especially with VR in mind.

Makes sense as you need time to develop the screens and for GPUs to catch up. Also once they are out in numbers gives time to give feedback on what to improve.

I don't get it, why would this research company know Facebook's future plans? Or is Cantor Fitzgerald part of Facebook?

hahha i can see it now, april 2019, finally another 1000  rifts are shipping!  we're almost there people!!! just another 10 years or so 🙂 

in all seriousness, i hope 2019 is true, hopefully longer than that too, too expensive to be dropping that amount of cash soon
