Play PC games on the move? Steam Deck told us one thing: the future is now. Unfortunately, the future must be delayed by a few months. There is a shortage of parts for the future, so the future will not happen in time.
Basically, the Steam Deck will not come out in 2021 as we thought. When you preorder new software or hardware, you can usually place a command or check availability, but for the Steam Deck, there is actually a waiting list for the opportunities to buy it. Valve updated its Steam Deck FAQ to explain the delay.
We have done our best to take into account the problems of the global supply chain (we mean that we have taken into account the extra time to take into account these risks and worked with several component suppliers), Our manufacturing plans were always affected. Shortages of materials and delays meant that the components did not arrive in time at our manufacturing facilities. Missing pieces as well as logistical challenges mean delayed Steam Decks, so we had to repel the two-month expedition until February. We will continue to work to improve reservation dates based on the new calendar and keep people informed as and when.
Valve does not enter the details of the rooms that are so rare, but the PS5 and Xbox Series X | S shortages can have common points with Steam Deck. Do not despair, the Master Race will win!
Hey, maybe if you study the internal operation of the Steam Deck, you can find a suitable replacement for crucial parts. The new Steam Deck exit window is February 2022.
