Oculus Founder Palmer Luckey To Make “Special Announcement” This Week

At this week’s “Game Awards” in Los Angeles, Oculus founder Palmer Luckey is scheduled to attend and make an announcement of some sort, its host announced today on Twitter:

It’ll be interesting to see what Luckey has to say and announce, and if I had to guess, it would have something to do with general availability of the Oculus Rift, the flagship virtual reality device that is set to arrive sometime in early January next year. Some hardcore gamers are holding out for the next step up from the Oculus DK2 instead of grabbing the Samsung Gear VR, which I’ve described as “Oculus light.”

Maybe a ship date? Features and functionality? Launch titles? Any or all would be lovely.

If you want to watch from home, The Game Awards are on this Thursday and will be streamed on YouTube and Twitch.

UPDATE: Palmer Luckey took to Twitter to hush rumors. Apparently the announcement won’t be about pre-orders for the Rift. Darn.
