When will your Steam Deck arrive? Valve website updated with new shipping information
If you’ve pre-ordered a Steam Deck, you may have wondered when your console will actually arrive, but Valve is now offering “more clarity” on its longer-term production schedule.
“We’ve been working hard to increase the number of Steam Decks we can produce this year,” Valve wrote in a post on Monday. “As a result, in addition to Q1 and Q2, reservists can now see if they are within the Q3 order availability window. You can check the Steam Deck product page (when logged in) to see your availability window. reservation.”

If the Steam Deck website says you should receive your device in Q1 or Q2, you were probably among the first to pre-order the device in July when sales opened. But if you were late for the pre-order party, the company’s website previously stated that all shipments would arrive sometime after Q2, making the exact run date uncertain.
The way Valve had to postpone all pre-orders for two months due to component shortages didn’t help. This caused the official Steam Deck website to push back estimated arrival dates for more customers, including PCMag writers, outside of the Q2 timeframe.
The company has now updated the Steam Deck website to indicate that all new pre-orders made today will arrive after Q3. Valve’s Monday post also added that the company plans to bring the Steam Deck to more markets by the end of this year, including Japan. “The team continues to push on all of these fronts and will share updates as we have more information,” he said.
