Facebook announced on Tuesday that it will stop selling Oculus Go virtual reality to focus on more advanced VR products.

"We will stop selling Oculus Go glasses this year to double our sales of Quest and Rift glasses," the company said in an article.

Facebook launched Oculus Go glasses in May 2018, starting at $ 199. The VR headset can be operated independently as it does not need to be connected to a computer or smartphone. Facebook later launched sunglasses from Oculos coast. Prices start at $ 399 and offer better specifications. Like the Oculos Rift S, which is offered at the same price, it needs a PC to work properly.

The company also said on its blog: "Okolos Joe demonstrated for the first time that a full form factor could provide a very great experience."

Although Facebook did not announce the sale of its virtual reality glasses, it announced in the first quarter of 2020 that profits announced last April that advertising revenue (including Oculus) had reached $ 297 million, likewise as The previous year. The percentage increased 80%.

It is worth noting that Facebook's decision to end acquisition of Oculus Go glasses came a day after the announcement of the acquisition of game developer Lone Echo. This deal is the latest initiative from Facebook to expand its position in the virtual reality market.

Facebook said: Bug fixes and security fixes will still be sent to Oculus Go users until 2022, but no new features will be released. After December 4 2020, Facebook will not accept the new Oculus Go apps and updates.
