The Oculus Rift did not receive the launch as it was expected. It is now being speculated that launching Rift without Touch controllers was not a smart move. Now, Oculus CEO Brendan Iribe has announced that the controllers will be available in fourth quarter.

Iribe said that the Oculus team was quite occupied with the pre-orders. Experts said that the Touch release has been delayed to the second half of 2016, but people continue to wait for the Touch controllers.
