While many gamers have been looking forward to the HTC Vive as the VR device developed in cooperation with Valve, there still is more time to go until the retail units ship.

When the HTC Vive launched there was hopes of it launching in November along with the Steam Machines, Steam Controller, and Steam Link. As time went on we heard by the "holidays 2015" for a limited release and full availability in Q1'2016. HTC has now announced their new retail target, which slightly misses the old window. The new expectation is for the retail launch of HTC Vive in April 2016.

HTC confirmed the new shipping target via this blog post. It looks like the VR battle could be on for 2016 with Occulus and others also planning to bring their VR headsets out officially.
