The HTC Vive Gets Delayed
HTC has announced that the Vive VR headset release would be delayed. The details of the delay has not been cleared by the company, but it promised that the headset will be out in the market in April 2016.
After anticipating an HTC Vive VR headset for months by virtual reality enthusiasts, HTC has delayed the release date to April 2016 despite promising that a commercial version of the headset would be made available before the year ends. In the company's effort to clear out the misinformation and speculations circulating about the release date of the device, HTC states that it is somehow enthusiastic to deliver the announcement regarding the delay.
The news is not all that bad as a second-generation developer type of the Vive will be unveiled in early 2016. Hopefully, this will allow more revolutions to be incorporated by the developers so that consumers of the device will be able to enjoy the Vive's final version when it is released.
HTC states that it will be providing 7,000 additional units to developers available starting 2016. It will be followed by commercial availability of the product to consumers in April. In addition, the company states that it is excited and looking forward to the future in sharing more information towards the device's release date.
The company also indicated that a small rollout of the VR headset would be happening before 2015 ends, and a series of announcement that led some VR fans to believe that a full launch of the Vive would be impending. With the official April delay announcement, it looks like the consumers who have pre-ordered the device would have to wait three months longer.
The reason for the delay was not quite cleared by the company. However, the company said that it is continuing to work with companies to develop games for the Vive, as well as commercial content and entertainment. This also could mean that the company was not satisfied with the current available range of applications for the device.
