While Minecraft has been available on the Oculus Rift platform since August 2016, it has yet to make an appearance on other major VR platforms like the Oculus Quest.

Since the Quest's debut over a year ago, many users have been asking about the possibility of seeing Minecraft VR on the Oculus Quest, but Facebook, Microsoft, and Mojang have been surprisingly silent on the matter.

Industry veteran and Consulting CTO of Oculus, John Carmack, says he had Minecraft running on the Quest at one point but was unable to get the production team's schedules aligned to get the project officially delivered onto the Quest platform.

There's really no telling what kind of future Minecraft VR might have for other platforms, but the current reality is likely wound more tightly into internal politics than lack of interest or capability of the Quest platform.

On the bright side, you can play Minecraft on your Oculus Quest right now if you hook it up to your PC, so while it's not wireless, it is still Minecraft in VR!
