Facebook cancels VR Oculus Rift 2 headset design

According to TechCrunch, Facebook has canceled the development of the Oculus Rift 2, which would be the second generation of the company’s main virtual reality headset. There are still not many details on why, but it is known that some changes have taken place in the company’s RV division.

These changes, according to the site, were also responsible for the departure of Brendan Iribe, co-founder and former CEO of Oculus. Facebook and the executive had ” very different views on the future of Oculus and have deepened over time,” an anonymous source said.

In response to TechCrunch, Facebook did not deny the relationship between the two events, but revealed that a new Rift model is still in the future plans.

For now, Oculus is growing in other arms: Oculus Quest, recently announced, promises to be an innovative console for video games; the Oculus Go , on the other hand, is a virtual reality headset with more affordable price.
