Valve ramps up to produce more Steam Decks 'faster than ever before'

Many customers will be getting their Steam Decks quicker than previously expected.


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.”

In addition to the good news production wise, Valve also shared information about updated reservation windows, with many customers in the “Q4 or later” window being bumped up to a “Q3 (July-September” window. Meanwhile, new reservations for Steam Deck will occupy the Q4 window (October-December).
