Oculus Go standalone VR headset gets axed

Posted on Friday, Jun 26 2020 @ 16:45 CEST by Thomas De Maesschalck
Facebook's Oculus unit announces that the standalone Go headset will be discontinued. Earlier this year, the product got a $50 price cut, which resulted in pricing of $149 for the 32GB version. The company will continue to provide bug fixes and security updates through 2022, but new Oculus Go apps will no longer be accepted into the Oculus Store after December 4, 2020.
If you own an Oculus Go headset, you’ll still be able to use it even after sales of Oculus Go end. We’ll also continue to maintain the system software with bug fixes and security patches through 2022. That said, we won’t be shipping new features for Oculus Go moving forward, and we’ll no longer accept new Oculus Go apps or app updates into the Store after December 4, 2020. We’ll stop adding new Go apps into the Store after December 18, 2020.
With the Oculus Go out of the picture, Oculus is doubling down on its Quest and Rift headsets.
