Today, Oculus VR community manager Andres Hernandez revealed that due to an overwhelming amount of Oculus Rift’s latest Developers Kit (DK2), they won’t be able to deliver the requested amount on time. This month alone, over 45,000 DK2 were pre-ordered, making it quite a challenge for Oculus VR to supply everybody.
“We expect to ship roughly 10,000 DK2s from the factory in July, with just over half of the units through distribution centres and on their way to doorsteps before the end of the month,” stated Hernandez.
“We’re slightly behind in manufacturing and there’s currently a high chance that some developers with estimated shipping in July may not have their DK2s shipped until August. We have a team in China working on continued ramp of production at our factory, and we’ll work our way through the queue as fast as we can.”
Back in March, Oculus VR announced that Facebook bought them off with a staggering $2 billion offer.
