Back in March, Microsoft announced that the company will be bringing support for Oculus Rift to Minecraft on Windows 10. After several months of wait, it seems like Minecraft players will finally be able to play the game on the Oculus Rift next week. Tommaso Checchi, one of the developers working on Minecraft confirmed on Twitter today that the company will be releasing Oculus Rift support next week:
PSA: unsurprisingly, promised dates change 🙂
We said that Rift support would be in 0.15.6, but it will be out next week instead!

Microsoft will be bringing Oculus Rift to Minecraft: Windows 10 Edition, meaning that you won’t be able to play Minecraft on the Rift with the desktop version of the game. Instead, you’ll have to use the Windows 10 Edition which is also pretty great. It is worth noting that if you already own Minecraft on your Windows PC or Mac, you can get the Windows 10 Edition for free. The game is also expected to be available via the Oculus Store.
We will let you know when Oculus Rift is supported by Minecraft on Windows 10. In the meantime, let us know if you are looking forward to playing Minecraft on your Rift in the comment section below.
