Oculus Rift is down because Facebook services aren’t working.
OCULUS has confirmed that today’s Facebook outage has impacted its services, rendering major functions unavailable to VR users.
An outage that has taken down Facebook and its massive social media network is also causing problems in the virtual reality industry.
Oculus has stated that the server troubles have severely impacted its core services, preventing VR headset users from accessing their accounts.
The good news is that the firm is aware of the issues and is working to resolve them. The major disadvantage is that there is no time frame for when today’s problems will be remedied.
“We’re aware that some people are having problems accessing our apps and goods,” says the latest warning from Oculus. We’re working hard to restore normalcy as soon as possible, and we apologize for any inconvenience.” According to what has been provided thus far, players will not only be unable to use the Oculus app, but those who do will also be unable to play any games that have been installed.
Some people are even having trouble finding their games, fearing that they have vanished forever.
While there may be temporary challenges for gamers today, we won’t know more about the long-term consequences until Facebook servers are restored.
Facebook has not issued an ETA on this matter, although it did provide the following update on the current outage concerns earlier today:
“We’re aware that certain of our apps and products aren’t working for some people. We’re working hard to restore normalcy as soon as possible, and we regret for any inconvenience.”
