Oculus Quest 3 and Oculus Quest Pro: What We Know

Oculus Quest 3 and Oculus Quest Pro: What We Know

Good news VR fans! We're starting to hear the first rumblings of the next Oculus VR headset, currently being referred to by fans as the Oculus Quest 3. Mark Zuckerberg, in Facebook's January earnings call, stated that the company is "continuing to work on new [Virtual Reality] hardware".

While very little is known about the headset as of now, Zuckerberg also confirmed that the new headset will "kind of fit the same platform". Additionally, existing Oculus software "should" be forwards-compatible with it, meaning that your existing VR library will almost certainly carry forward. Sadly, a release date hasn't been confirmed, but 2022 and 2023 are the estimated dates for its launch, although it's mostly speculation right now.

Additionally, Andrew Bosworth, VP of AR and VR at Facebook, teased an "Oculus Quest Pro" device, which is expected to be a half-step iteration of the Quest 2 which, among other improvements, will support 120Hz. The release date for this upgraded headset is also unknown, but it's expected significantly sooner than the Oculus Quest 3.

Elsewhere in the VR sphere, Sony also announced that it is working on a follow-up to its last VR headset (released in October 2016). Although there is no release date for this headset either, it's a sure sign that the next generation of VR is on the way.
