Oculus Rift production on hold after component issue

Stock now "quickly running out".

The developer of Oculus Rift has run out of components to make more headsets, and production has ceased as a result.


Oculus' virtual reality goggles have been a smash hit - so much so that the supply of parts needed to make them has now been exhausted.

"Certain components used in the Oculus Rift developer kit are no longer being manufactured, meaning they are no longer available to us for production," the company revealed in a post on the Oculus Reddit. "As a result, we don't have the necessary materials to produce additional kits.

"We still have some stock available, but we're quickly running out."

Oculus is now attempting to source the parts from elsewhere but does not have a timeline for when additional units will be available.

"As we sell out of inventory in each region we plan to suspend sales in that region until we are able to deliver new orders," the company concluded.
