Oculus Quest 2 will almost certainly receive support for 120Hz refresh rate in a future update, it’s only a matter of when (via TechRadar). Vice President of Facebook Reality Labs, Andrew Bosworth, confirmed by giving a thumbs up response during an Instagram Q&A to a query about whether or not Quest 2 will get the 120Hz upgrade.
UploadVR then spotted a 120Hz Refresh Support section in the Quest platform roadmap, a guide available to Quest developer accounts. It’s labeled as experimental and while the feature’s target release date is listed as March 2021, Oculus attached a medium confidence tag to the section. That means a delay could happen, and it’s uncertain when exactly Quest 2 users will get to test out 120Hz on the headset.
@ID_AA_Carmack In light of the new 120hz update, how confident are you that Quest games will be able to run at 120fps?

Only a few existing games will be tweaked for 120, but some new titles will consider it an option in their design phase.

John Carmack, Oculus VR’s consulting CTO, confirmed on Twitter that only a couple of existing games would be modified for 120Hz and new titles could “consider it an option in their design phase.”
