We’ve got it – the Meta Quest 3 Release Date.

If you’ve been keeping up to date with the latest VR trends, you are probably looking forward to the release of the Meta Quest 3, the latest VR headset from Meta. Luckily, there’s been some key information emerging about when the virtual reality device will become available.

It’s looking like the launch date for the headset will be in Fall 2023. When exactly this will be unclear, but Mark Zuckerberg has recently announced that more details will be revealed at the Meta Connect conference. This will be on September 27th, 2023.

Stay tuned then for the announcement. But for now, we have all the key info and specs – or at least the ones we know so far.

When will the Meta Quest 3 become available?

We expect the Meta Quest 3 headset to become available in Fall 2023. Whether this will be September or October release – or even after that – is, as of June 2023, currently up for debate. It could even be next year. We’ll learn more at the Meta conference.

What’s new about the Meta Quest 3?

The Meta Quest 3 is a next-generation, hands-on, mixed-reality VR headset which promises a range of features setting it apart from its predecessor, the Meta Quest 2 / Oculus Quest 2. Upgrades include pancake lenses and super high-fidelity color passthrough, with increased accuracy in the sensors and touch plus controllers. A high refresh rate of 120Hz assures high-speed gaming in what is shaping up to be a seriously high-tech piece of kit.

Cameras on the outside enable mixed-reality experiences, with games set to incorporate elements of the outside world alongside a high-res display boosted by 2,064 by 2,208 pixels per eye.
