NVIDIA Shield Discontinued, is v2 Release Imminent?

Shield TV out of stock
Update: The 16GB model of the Shield is also out-of-stock on NVIDIA’s online store.

NVIDIA’s Shield TV has seen a lot of success since it was first announed. In addition to NVIDIA working with game developers to bring a number of exclusive games to its device, it also seems to have sold enough that NVIDIA is planning a sequel.

Two weeks ago we first began to hear rumors of a new NVIDIA Shield. A new TV remote control passed by the FCC for approval. Not too long after that FCC documents showed a 2nd generation Shield TV.

If true, NVIDIA will likely have this product on sale by the holiday season and move customers to this new model by discontinuing the original.

Recently Redditor mrwabit noticed that the NVIDIA Shield has been discontinued on the site ebuyer. Additionally, it’s unavailable or out-of-stock on Amazon.

Does this mean we’ll see the second generation coming soon? NVIDIA doesn’t seem like they’re giving up on Android TV. With Android Nougat just released, now’s a good chance to announce a state-of-the-art gaming console.

What kind of hardware would you want to see in a new NVIDIA Shield TV? Let us know in the comments below.
