Oculus Touch Delayed Which Is a Total Bummer

Oculus Touch, the innovative controllers designed for use with the Oculus Rift VR headset, has been delayed until the second half of 2016. The final consumer version of the Rift is still expected to ship in the first quarter of 2016.

In a blog post Oculus explained that the Touch just wasn’t ready for prime time. You shouldn’t really be surprised. The Rift has been in development for years and is only just now coming to market. The Touch is actually a relatively recent product.

So have fun playing games with no controllers! I kid. You can use any old controller if you want to play with the Rift. But it’s a little sad that the full Oculus experience won’t be available for at least six more months. Oh Oculus, how you tease us.
