When is the Steam Deck Release Date? Know about Valve’s Steam Deck
Pre-ordered Steam Decks will begin shipping to customers in FEBRUARY 2021. In a blog post published one month prior to the scheduled launch, Valve stated that the game would be delayed until January instead of December.
There will be a two-month delay in the release of Steam Deck. Despite our best efforts, we cannot fulfil our initial launch dates due to material constraints in the worldwide supply chain. We apologise for any inconvenience this may cause. Steam Deck is expected to begin shipping to consumers in February 2022, based on our most recent build estimates. Reservation holders will be able to keep their spots in line, but the dates will be shifted back correspondingly.
In February 2022, the first portable PCs will be in use, according to Valve. Many people couldn’t get a system until a later wave because to problems with Steam’s website on the day pre-orders went live. Since no orders were placed immediately, all of those units are now slated to ship in Q2 2022 or later.
Is there a trailer for a steam decker?
Yes! The official Steamworks Development YouTube channel has the most valuable trailer for the new device, which can be seen here:
Pre-orders are limited to one per Valve account. It costs $5 to reserve your place in a digital queue for pre-orders for all pre-orders. For every Steam Deck you buy, you’ll have to pay the cost.
Refunds will be made within 30 days if you cancel your Steam Deck reservation before it’s time or if you miss your turn.
