It s been more than two years since Microsoft publicly demonstrated its HoloLens mixed reality headset.

Since that time, Microsoft has moved the device from the prototype phase into production albeit as a limited developer model that ll set buyers back a cool $3,000.

Although Microsoft never laid out an exact launch date for a full-on consumer version, most assumed that a more polished and affordable version of HoloLens would be coming down the pipeline any day now.

A recent report from Thurrott.com, however, suggests otherwise.

Several sources over the past week told the publication that Microsoft has shuffled its HoloLens roadmap, a move that has apparently resulted in the second iteration of the device being cancelled.

That doesn t mean Microsoft is canning the entire project; instead, they re simply skipping over the second revision and going straight to the third iteration.
