Though it looked to be slipping just ahead of Black Friday, Oculus Quest 2 stock is holding fairly steady at the very start of the holiday shopping season.
Updated – November 27th, 2020
At the launch of the headset, Facebook told Road to VR the company was planning to make “many more” units of Quest 2 than the original Quest headset, which was very difficult to find during the previous holiday shopping season.
Despite additional challenges to manufacturing and logistics due to the Coronavirus pandemic, Quest 2 stock has been relatively easy to find from both Oculus and third-party retailers up to this point.
Oculus Quest 2 & Rift S Stock Check
We checked stock availability for direct purchases from Oculus.com for Quest 2 (64GB), Quest 2 (256GB), and Rift S across all regions where the headsets are sold. The latest shows shipping delays from one to three weeks in 10 of 22 regions for the 64GB version of the headset. The 256GB version remains widely available with little delay except in 4 of 22 regions.
Meanwhile, Rift S availability is holding pretty strong so far, though less demand for the headset is expected considering Oculus has announced the Rift product line will be discontinued in 2021 as the company fully shifts focus to standalone VR headsets with optional PC tethering.
