Back in July we reported on the fact that the Minecraft team kicked off a celebration of the one year anniversary of Windows 10 by announcing support for Oculus Rift. At the time, the release date for the feature was vague, but now it appears that the support for Oculus Rift might come live as early as next week (via Windows Central.)
PSA: unsurprisingly, promised dates change :)
We said that Rift support would be in 0.15.6, but it will be out next week instead!

The news comes from Tommaso Checchi on Twitter. Tommaso is part of the Minecraft team and works on the Pocket and Windows 10 edition of the game. Again, as official as his Tweet sounds, release dates can change, so please be aware that nothing is set in stone as of yet.
