The Facebook-owned company says it will start removing support for separate Oculus accounts in October, although users can maintain an existing account until January 1st, 2023.

A new privacy policy will be administered by Facebook itself, not the separate Facebook Technologies hardware subsidiary, and “Facebook will manage all decisions around use, processing, retention and sharing of your data.”

They will manage? I don't think so. If a product works only with a Facebook account, it just wont'e be bought. Simple as that. No product is amazing enough to put up with that.
