You Can Nonetheless Get Oculus Quest 2 Earlier than Xmas, 2021 for North America – VRFocus
When it comes to bringing something new into your life – or for Christmas – that virtual reality (VR) fanatic, Facebook’s new Oculus Quest 2 is the headset. Starting at £ 299, the standalone headset wasn’t too difficult to hold, but was easier in some countries than others. Here are the current delivery times from Oculus.com.
The Oculus official website is probably the main shopping portal due to the current Covid-19 pandemic. The local retailers are closed due to lockdown measures. As you can see in the table below, the headset will be available before December 25th in most countries with a few exceptions.
Customers in the US or Canada will be hardest hit, with mid to late January 2021 being the earliest. With the Oculus Quest 2 – 64GB model apparently the most popular, there is a longer delay in countries like the UK and Ireland.

This is of course only possible from Oculus.com. If local retailers are open or have online sales, they may have more inventory. The 256GB version is available this week through Amazon UK, but the 64GB version is not in stock.
German customers will also find that no data was available. This is due to Facebook’s ongoing problems with the Federal Cartel Office (FCO) stopping the sale.
