Oculus-Rift-5Yesterday we reported that after what felt like a long time, Oculus finally got their Oculus Rift pre-orders under control and have announced that all pre-orders have been fulfilled. However they noted that the Touch controllers were still in the works and wouldn’t ship until later this year, which is admittedly rather vague.

The good news is that for those looking for a more specific date, Brendan Iribe has confirmed (via Kotaku) that the Touch controllers will only be shipping in volume come Q4. His tweet reads, “Oculus Rift is now shipping in 2-4 days. Apologies for initial delay. We’re fully caught up & ramping production. Touch ships in volume Q4.”

Iribe also added that the as of now, the Touch controllers are making their way to developers, so hopefully we’ll be hearing some feedback on how well the controllers perform. The company will be sharing more information about their Touch controllers later this year at the Oculus Connect 3 which is on the 5th of October, which means that the controllers probably won’t be available before then.

We guess it’s a bit frustrating for customers who have pre-ordered the unit early only to have to wait a few more months, but we suppose better late than never, right?
