Oculus promises special announcement at this week’s Game Awards

The Game Awards are even closer than you realised, taking place in Los Angeles this Thursday night, December 3. And, just like in previous years, there’s a stack of amazing content planned for the evening. If 10 world premieres (count ’em!) isn’t enough for you, now Oculus is getting in on the action, promising a “special announcement” from company founder Palmer Luckey.

The big VR news comes via event host Geoff Keighley, who took to Twitter to build just a bit more hype.

We’re not sure what this “special announcement” will be just yet, but we’ve got our suspicions. It’d be a great time, location and mass audience for Oculus to announce a release date for the Rift headset, wouldn’t it?

The headset is expected to launch in the first few months of next year, with pre-orders opening before Christmas (which, whoa, is getting awfully close).

It would make sense for Oculus to tell us more – specs, availability, date and (of course!) the price!

The Game Awards kicks off on Thursday night at 6pm Los Angeles time (What’s that in my timezone?), and of those 10 world premieres, we know one of them will be Far Cry Primal.
