Back in March, the second generation of Oculus’s work-in-progress virtual reality headset went up for pre-order. No one knew exactly when the new headset would actually ship, outside of a target window of “sometime in July”. Word on the Oculus fan forums was that the company would announce more details today, and sure enough: the company has just announced that the first DK2 headsets should start arriving by the week of July 14th. If you didn’t get your order in early, though, you might be waiting a while: while Oculus has received just over 45,000+ pre-orders for the DK2, just 10,000 headsets are expected to ship this month. For reference: by the time Oculus “ran out of materials” to build their first generation Rifts, they’d sold around 50,000 units. With 45,000 units pre-ordered, the second-gen dev kit is already set to surpass the original.
