Microsoft announced this week that the HoloLens 2 Development Edition is now available for developers located within the United States and that it is also expected to roll out to several other regions by the end of the year which is less than two months away.

The other regions mentioned were Canada, Germany, France, UK, Ireland, Japan, Australia, New Zealand, Switzerland, and Italy.

HoloLens 2 Development Edition is a bundle of hardware and services which developers can use to design interactive projects and 3D augmented reality content. The kit contains a single HoloLens 2 device, $500 in Azure credits, and 3-month licences for Unity Pro and Pixyz.

The availability of HoloLens 2 Development Edition in the United States and other regions has taken quite a bit longer than most expected, having been announced way back in May 2019. The commercial version of the HoloLens 2 headset was made available via the Microsoft Store in June of this year.
