Facebook Connect is today, September 16, and it kicks off with a keynote at 10 AM PST (1 PM ET). Facebook Connect is the rebranded successor to Oculus Connect, and we expect to see several announcements. Following leaked renders and an accidental set of leaks from Facebook itself, many expect the company to announce the Oculus Quest 2.
Facebook Connect has over 35 speakers, over 15 sessions, and should cover a wide range of topics. You can watch the event live on Facebook or through Oculus Venues. You can navigate to those pages through the Facebook Connect website or jump to the Facebook stream directly. We've also embedded it below. In an FAQ section on that page, it explains that if you miss the live event that you'll be able to watch recaps on the Facebook Reality Labs page on Facebook.
Thanks to the leaks, we have an idea of what the Oculus Quest 2 likely looks like. Based off leaks, it's lighter, smaller, and has improved internals when compared to the original Oculus Quest. That being said, there are still several key questions that need to be answered, including its price, release date, full spec list, and details regarding games.
In addition to a potential Oculus Quest 2 announcement, we also expect to hear news regarding games and other parts of the platform. Facebook Connect will cover both augmented and virtual reality, so there should be plenty of content to watch.
Grab one while it's hot!
If the Oculus Quest 2 is anything like the original Oculus Quest, it's going to be hard to find. Facebook has improved seemingly everything with the second-generation Oculus Quest, making this the VR console to get.
