The story

HTC Vive has—almost definitely this time—teased the release of a new headset.

The virtual reality hardware and software company posted an image of a yet-to-be launched device earlier today on its Twitter account, with the message: “Now that the accessories are out of the way, let’s get down to business.”

Not much can be determined from the image, but the message refers to the new body and facial trackers announced last month. HTC Vive also previewed those in a similar fashion, leading to significant speculation that a new headset was in the works.

UploadVR believes “let’s get down to business” could mean that the all-but confirmed new headset is aimed at the enterprise market and VRWorldTech is inclined to agree.

During a recent discussion on the company’s plans for the enterprise market, an HTC Vive executive told VRWorldTech to expect further exciting announcements above and beyond the Vive Facial Tracker and Vive Tracker 3.0 “soon”.

Until more details are confirmed, read about what VRWorldTech thinks the enterprise market needs from a new HTC Vive headset, given what’s already available and what these customers are looking for right now.
