Bartosz Zik (HTC product commercialization manager) states (in 2 interviews) that Dec 8 will be when HTC "premier" the VR headset in UK, US and Germany.

Not sure what does "premier" exactly refers to here. Could be an announcement of a release date, or the release date itself. Either way its not a public official annoucement so best to take it as a rumor for now.

Update: We reached out to HTC and their response states “I would not consider this information confirmed or from HTC official channels.”

Kinda weird that this is coming from Poland, right? Since according to the reveal Poland won't be one of the regions included in the initial "premiere?"

This is what was said

When will be the premiere of the device?

HTC: The premiere is December 8. We will start from the USA, UK, Germany and then it will also be available in Poland.

How much may it cost?

HTC: That's something we don't know yet.
The same employee gave another interview where this was said:

"8 december there will be published price, it will be possible to purchase and there will be published list of available titles - we estimate that it will be several dozen of full games."
