Valve has announced that they’ve managed to resolve issues that have plagued their supply chain for the Steam Deck. This means they’ll be able to produce more Steam Decks than before, which allows them to fulfill orders much quicker.

Valve said those who originally had an expected date for their console in Q4 of 2022 “or later” have been moved up into Q3 of the same year instead. Meanwhile everyone else is now firmly in Q4.

At the time of writing, Valve state that new reservations will be set for Q4 2022. However, if demand continues to prove to be too high, then they may have to move reservations into the next quarter – which would be Q1 of 2023.

This is great news for those still waiting for their order of the Steam Deck. Supply chain issues have plagued the launch of the console ever since February. This also includes the indefinite delay of the dock for the handheld console, which would allow it to connect to an external monitor.

For those who do have a reservation, Valve recommends you check out this link here to see the window of time you can expect your own Steam Deck.

Valve’s recently launched Steam Deck is now available, and in three flavors: $399 (64GB), $529 (256GB), and $649 (512GB), over on the Steam store.
