With the PC hardware market changing nearly daily, it's refreshing to hear that HTC won't be releasing another Vive headset in a rush, with HTC Vive General Manager Daniel O'Brien fielding some questions about Vive 2 recently.

During an interview with Digital Trends, O'Brien said: "We're always continuing to listen to developers, what they think is the most beneficial next-generation improvements and that's how we're solving the next headset and when that will come to market". He continued: "It's not about picking a production cycle and timeline, it's about bringing really meaningful innovation that helps the developer community to create compelling new experiences".

 

HTC was talking about improving and upgrading the first-gen Vive, where O'Brien said that the lighter cable made the Vive a "more comfortable mid-generation" change and that there's "no harm in us doing that". O'Brien added that: "When it comes to major jumps like resolution, that's new-new products".

 

O'Brien was asked about when we'll know more information about Vive 2, where he said: "We're always continuing to listen to developers, what they think is the most beneficial next-generation improvements and that's how we're solving the next headset and when that will come to market. It's not about picking a production cycle and timeline, it's about bringing really meaningful innovation that helps the developer community to create compelling new experiences".
