Oculus is on track to release its VR headset, the Rift, in Q1 2016. This means that those eager to get their hands on the headset will be able to start placing pre-orders very shortly.

Oculus CEO Palmer Luckey took to Twitter to share news with VR enthusiasts. "Thrilled to share some news: Manufacturing continues to go well, and we are still on-target for an awesome Rift launch in Q1!"

"Preorders are coming soon after new year. Enjoy a stress-free holiday, we won't launch preorders without warning!"

Oculus is yet to announce a specific release date or price for the VR headset. Perhaps we'll hear more at CES 2016 in January.
