Official DK2 Shipment Update
Reddit user cybereality, who in reality is Andres Hernandez, the Community Manager at Oculus VR took to Reddit and the official forums to give the first update on Development Kit 2 Shipments. In short, they’re shipping. Oculus VR looks to ship only 10,000 units with hopes of half reaching developers this month.
The first batch of official DK2s have left the manufacturing facility and are making their way to our distribution centers now. We expect to ship roughly 10,000 DK2s from the factory in July, with just over half of the units through distribution centers and on their way to doorsteps before the end of the month. The very first units are expected to reach developers the week of July 14th. Tracking numbers for all DK2s will be generated as soon as the shipment has been processed by a distribution center.

While 10,000 is an impressive number, around 12,000 pre orders were made during the first day. We at RiftyBusiness placed our order the second week of open pre orders. We hopped to receive our DK2 in July, but it looks like under these shipping conditions it may take more time.
RiftyBusiness will continue to follow up on DK2 Shipments, and will report back with any updates.
