Oculus Founder Palmer Luckey is set to take the stage of The Game Awards this Thursday, December 3rd to make a ‘special announcement’.
The Game Awards 2015 marks the second year for the ceremony, produced by game journalist and host Geoff Keighley. The organization today announced in a promotional video that Oculus will take to the stage for a ‘special announcement’ at this year’s event. A tweet from Keighley confirms that founder Palmer Luckey will be the one to make the announcement.
There’s much we still don’t know about the Rift, Oculus’ flagship VR headset which is due to launch in Q1 2016. And while it’s tempting to think we might glean new details about the headset when Luckey takes to the stage on Thursday, it seems more likely—given the platform—that the announcement will be related to Rift content rather than hardware.
Oculus has been heavily focused on content lately, announcing content partnerships with Netflix, Hulu, Minecraft, and more at their ‘Connect’ developer conference this year.
Those looking to catch the announcement live can tune in to The Game Awards on YouTube Gaming on Thursday, December 3 at 9PM ET (your timezone here). Pre-show starts at 8:30PM ET (your timezone here).
