Supply chain issues have plagued a myriad of industries including the production of tech like Valve’s Steam Deck. Fortunately, it seems like some of these issues are clearing up as Valve shared a blog post with the good news that Steam Deck production is ramping up. With this, Valve notes being able to “produce more Decks faster than ever before.”
Great news: Everyone who currently has a reservation can get their Steam Deck by the end of this year! We’ve cleared up supply chain issues, a bunch of folks got moved up to Q3, and all other reservations are now in Q4.— Steam Deck (@OnDeck) July 29, 2022
