To put an end to some misinformation about the launch of their upcoming device, HTC and Valve announced today the HTC Vive headset is coming to stores in April 2016.
According to HTC’s blog, both companies “have focused on developing immersive content, refining both hardware design and user experience, and building relationships with new partners both inside and outside of the gaming industry.”
To make the new device available to a greater audience, 7000 additional units will be made for developers. The commercial release of the HTC Vive will be sometime in April 2016.
The release of the HTC Vive next year will compete against Sony’s PlayStation VR (to be released during the first half of 2016) and Oculus, Oculus Rift (to be released in the first quarter of 2016).
