Oculus Rift Shipments Suffer Delay Due To Component Shortage

Two weeks ago, Oculus announced they were working through an “unexpected component shortage” and as a result the original shipping estimates for some early customers were impacted. People who pre-ordered the headset have since had their shipping waived as an apology for the delay of the product. Now, it has been announced that more people are being affected by the component shortage.

Recently, customers have been receiving emails informing them that the shipping date of their Oculus Rift has been pushed back from July to August. To put this in perspective, the Oculus Rift was released on March 28th, meaning new customers will likely be without their headset until four months after its initial release date.

Oculus customer support has since posted to the Oculus Rift subreddit regarding the delay, saying:

Kickstarter Backers, we’re changing your Order History to show “TBD” instead of the date as that date was applicable to the time in which we imported the orders. We’ve already fulfilled a large number of the orders and more are being fulfilled on a regular cadence. Your Rifts are from a different allocation.

Customers are not happy about these delays, especially those people who have pre-ordered the headset the day they went on sale have seen their shipping date pushed back by months. Have you been affected by the delay? Let me know.
