Back in October 2020 during an exclusive interview on YouTube, Megadodo Games originally stated that they intended to ship the first batch of the DecaGear VR system in late May 2021, however, due to the shortage in the consumer electronics market, not only has the delivery times changed the headset may now cost as much as £530 ($700).
The new timeline for DecaGear is as follows:
Quote from Or Kuntzman
"Even if we solve the financial issues and produce the headset as is, its current price is ~$700, more than double the cost of the Quest 2".

Don’t feel hard done by because of this. This extension will undoubtedly provide the company with more time to fully test the headset and - you never know - it’s quite possible they'll improve some of its features, such as the Field of View (FOV), controller tracking and the DecaAir wireless gaming accessory.
For those of you unfortunate to secure your order for the first batch of headsets, you can join the waitlist for the second batch and pre-order the DecaGear VR headset here. You probably won't receive the headset until Q4 of 2022, so sometime between October and December. The pre-order will include a DecaGear 1 VR system, which comprises of two controllers and the DecaMove, hip navigational device.
The first batch of DecaGear 'Blogger edition' headsets is scheduled for shipping in Q2 of 2022 - between April and June. Megadodo Games will provide us with further updates, should things change.
