2020 is shaping up to be a pivotal year for VR.
Yesterday, Facebook Reality Labs conducted its Q3 2020 Earnings Call, during which company co-founder and CEO, Mark Zuckerberg, stated that the Oculus Quest 2 received 5x as many pre-orders as the original Oculus Quest. According to an official representative, these numbers surpassed the companies expectations.
While the launch of the Oculus Quest 2 hasn’t been without its hiccups, it appears as though the companies new account policy hasn’t scared away mainstream audiences.
Yesterday also included an announcement by ILMxLAB in which the company revealed a brand new interactive VR short called “Temple of Darkness” launching alongside Star Wars: Tales from the Galaxy’s Edge on November 19th.
