Orders for new Steam Decks will not be shipped until at least October
If you’re interested in a Steam Deck but haven’t made a reservation yet, you may want to do so soon. Valve has updated the Steam Deck page to indicate that reservations taken now will not be able to be fulfilled until “after Q3 2022,” which means you won’t be able to purchase one of the mobile gaming PCs until at least October.
Previously, new bookings were restricted to “after Q2 2022,” but it appears that demand is strong enough that Valve is extending the order timeframe into the year. However, for those who had previously made a reservation for the “after Q2 2022” window, there is some encouraging news: Valve is beginning to demonstrate that some should now anticipate being able to place purchases in Q3.
