Oculus revealed the Oculus Quest 2 in September. Alongside the new headset, the company announced that it would be stepping away from developing dedicated PC VR headsets in favor of its hybrid approach with Oculus Link on Quest. Oculus also announced that the days were numbered for Rift S, with planned end-of-life for spring next year.

Leading up to the holidays, through Black Friday and Cyber Monday, Oculus didn't bother to discount the Rift S headset. Instead, focussing primarily on the Quest 2 to drive sales for the Oculus platform. Now, with the Quest 2 sold out in most places, it seems Oculus is making a last-ditch effort to sell more hardware before the holiday shopping season ends.
