Meta Connect 2022 gets an official date with CEO Mark Zuckerberg teasing the successor to the Oculus Quest 2. It now seems that the company is on a quest to make the best VR headset ever.
Meta Connect 2022 Gets an Official Date
The parent company of Facebook, Meta has just recently announced a date for Meta Connect 2022 and the event is set to take place on October 11. Also, we get to get a glimpse of its next VR headset: project Cambria.
It’s no doubt that this year’s Meta Connect event might not be as wild as the event of last year which saw the company changes its maiden name from Facebook and also announced its bold metaverse ambitions and plans. This year’s event however should and will give users a better look at the successor of Meta’s Oculus Quest 2 which is the so-called Project Cambria VR headset.
You should however note here that Met has not explicitly said or mentioned that Cambria which will very much likely be called the Quest Pro will be in attendance as it has been hinted at strongly.
Meta Promised During the 2021 Connect Event We Would See the Launch of Cambria In 2022
For starters who are not used to this very event, here is something you should know. Meta had promised during the 2021 Connect event that we would see the launch of Cambria in 2022 which is just a few months away from ending. And when combined with this year’s show, it promises to give users and attendees ‘a look at what’s to come in the near and far future’ for its plans in regards to the metaverse and we can also guess safely that Cambria will be getting some stage time.
Mark Zuckerberg Already Teased Meta’s Next VR Headset In October
That’s however not all as the CEO of Meta, Mark Zuckerberg already teased that we would see Meta’s ‘next VR headset’ in October while making an appearance on the Joe Rogan Experience, plus a post on the Facebook page Mark that says “See you at Meta Connect on Oct 11”. We have also seen him wearing some shadowy VR headset that looks nothing like a Quest 2 device, but on the other hand like the Project Cambria render that Meta shared in 2021.
With that being said, we are very much guaranteed to see Meta show off its next VR headset during the event stipulated to take place in October.
