In the US, buyers can Canadians can expect it by 3 November, while in Canada, it is expected to arrive by 10 November.
“For Quest 2, we’re seeing high interest and strong demand for pre-orders. We’re temporarily back-ordered for Quest 2 pre-orders on oculus.com in certain regions and for certain SKUs, but we’re working to restore availability as soon as possible.” – Facebook representative.
