Connect 6 is about to start (and may already be over by the time you read this), and unless a big leak happened overnight, I don’t see a lot of significant news coming from this event.
What other announcements might we expect?
- the number of people with Oculus hardware
- updates on Rift S, Rift, and Quest
- Go’s death
- software updates
Nothing there is all that compelling.
Oculus has released two pieces of hardware this year. Sure, it may be announcing a big game for either this holiday or 2020, and maybe we’ll learn about some other notable titles coming for 2020. But it sure feels like Connect 6 is going to be more of an opportunity to take a breath and look at the state of VR than it is to tout all the hot stuff coming in the future.
We’ll find out shortly what Oculus has up its sleeve.
