Valve is also not immune to semiconductor lack of semiconductor, which currently makes whole industries from difficulty. Now the steam deck is affected.
Valve has announced the Steam Deck some time ago, which offers you similar to the Nintendo Switch the opportunity to play most of your games on Steam on the way. Actually, it was planned that the device is sent to the first pre-order in December. But Valve has as almost all other hardware manufacturers in the industry struggling with the problem of semiconductor spirit. Now the company has announced that due to the delivery bottlenecks, the Steam Deck is only delivered in February 2022.
At least Valve assumes that based on the current state of knowledge. Since the situation does not seem to relax and the problem will continue until the year 2023, according to some analysts, we would not be surprised if February 2022 can not be held as an appointment.
In addition to the appointment displacement, however, much has changed much. The order of pre-ordered remains and will gradually be processed as soon as the Steam Deck is available. Anyone who has already received a later date as February 2022 as a pre-order name must therefore be set to two months additional waiting time.
