    Oculus VR shipping 10k DK2 units in July

    Developers will start receiving these from July 14th and onwards. From the dev forum:

    The first batch of official DK2s have left the manufacturing facility and are making their way to our distribution centers now. We expect to ship roughly 10,000 DK2s from the factory in July, with just over half of the units through distribution centers and on their way to doorsteps before the end of the month. The very first units are expected to reach developers the week of July 14th. Tracking numbers for all DK2s will be generated as soon as the shipment has been processed by a distribution center.

    Please take a moment to confirm that your shipping address is up to date via the Oculus Sales page (https://www.oculusvr.com/sales/). We'll ship to the address on file, and if the information is incorrect, it may cause delivery delays. In the event that your payment information is no longer valid, you'll receive an email prior to shipment with instructions on how to complete your payment.

    We're now over 45,000 DK2 pre-orders, which is incredibly exciting. That said, 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.

    Once your Development Kit 2 is ready for shipment, you'll receive an email with a tracking number which can be used to see an estimated delivery date. Please do not contact Oculus support asking for a shipping estimate, as we do not know the status of your package until a tracking number has been generated.

    We'll continue to post status updates, so everyone can stay current on what's going on behind the scenes. Thanks again for your continued support, and we hope everyone is excited to be begin working with DK2!

        Honestly I have to say I'm pretty disappointed. I ordered late (last month on the 19th), but even so, I was sort of looking forward to getting it in August, rather than (I'm assuming here) late September or early/mid October.

        It wouldn't have been bad if they hadn't waited until yesterday to drop the boot and revise their statements from as little as a couple of weeks ago (where they said they were confident in shipping 20k ish DK2s in July) to what we have now (10k to distribution centers and only 5k to devs hands in July).

        That's a really big delay.

          Having used the DK1, HD Rift, and DK2 - it's worth the wait. Each one is a quantum leap in terms of quality.

            I have no doubt!

            Just disappointing is all. I was resigned to a month wait, but two-plus is pretty painful.

            Oh well, more time to work on my game!
