HTC Clarifies Vive 2 Release Date Details

By on

The Vive 2 appears to be one of the most awaited VR consoles this year. It is said to be released to the public soon.  However, there are some updates on its supposed release date.

It appears HTC has finally denied rumors that it may unveil the next-gen Vive headset at the Consumer Electronics Show next week in Las Vegas. The Taiwanese company also affirmed that they want to focus on existing VR products as well.

Much to the disappointment of VR fans, the rumors of HTC’s new device are not true after all. HTC said there’s no truth to these rumors, and that they want to first create a “strong and growing ecosystem for current and future owners.”

Most people with a Vive may have breathed a sigh of relief knowing their $800 VR headset will be relevant for a while longer. This is also good news for those who have just purchased their headset over the holidays.

Vive 2: Future of Virtual Reality

How the rumors exactly started, for some reason, is a mystery. Digitimes first carried the story to the western media. the supposed source is China’s Xinhua. From where the official press agency of the People’s Republic of China Xinhua got this news is unknown. However, the agency did claim that the impending announcement of Vive 2 may be the reason why the Vive has lowered prices in the market.

Regardless, a quick look at the specs of the quite-improved headset shows why they thought so. It apparently boasts two 4K displays with a 120Hz refresh rate and wireless connections. This directly puts it ahead of its main competitor, the Oculus Rift.

These features will most likely make it one of the most sought-after VR headsets, assuming the Vive 2 is released.

The fact that there’s no Vive 2 soon means manufacturers and devs have a ton of time to perfect their current-gen offerings.
