Oculus Addresses Issues With The Current Rift Problem

Adjust Comment Print

Oculus Rift users all over the world are experiencing problems with using their headsets at the moment. A certificate linked to the devices has expired and caused them to stop working, with users facing a "Can't Reach Oculus Runtime Service" error if they try to boot up. However, customers suspect it has something to do with a security certificate that validates the product's software.Apparently, that certificate expired today. We'll share more updates here as we have them.

For now, if you are an Oculus Rift owner, it would be best to keep an eye out for a software update, or an official announcement from Oculus VR themselves. A couple of responding users to the original forum post mentioned above suggested unistalling/re-installing the Oculus software.

Oculus has said it will also provide updates in this Reddit thread about the issue.

Alongside the HTC Vive, the Oculus Rift is one of the most widely used PC virtual reality headsets so any outage, especially one as widespread as the current one, should be of particular concern to developers with games on the platform.

The Oculus Rift has been selling particularly well over the last few months, but unfortunately it looks like users are starting to run into issues. Some users have had success with turning back the system clock on Windows 10, but that's not a reliable long-term solution.
