Working towards the eventual launch of the HTC Vive, the company has announced an additional distribution of over 7,000 HTC Developer Kits to developers and content creators among other events until the total package gets into the hands of consumers by mid-2016.

“We remain committed to delivering the HTC Vive to a broader group of content creators and partners, and remain focused on delivering the very best experience possible for a consumer release,” the company wrote in a blog post.

HTC earlier in March made public its plans with the HTC Vive, and has since then doubled its efforts to develop immersive content while perfecting the software and hardware design aspects of the device. To this extent, the company has been cementing collaborative efforts with new partners within and outside the gaming industry.

HTC partnered with Valve to make the HTC Vive Developer Kits available to content creators and developers, while raising assistance with other innovative entities to perfect user experience in the areas of gaming, retail, medical, education, and entertainment among others.

HTC has also perfected plans to host a conference for developers on December 18 in Beijing, and the event will usher in the opportunity to launch the second generation of HTC kits for developers; while collaboration sessions have been scheduled for GDC, SXSW, The Sundance Film Festival, and MWC among other events billed to showcase what HTC has in store for the market.
