Valve: Steam Deck Expeditions Expected to “More Than Double”

Still waiting for your Steam Deck pre-order? In good news, Valve now has enough devices manufactured to ship more than twice as many Steam Decks as before.

Valve delivered the update on Monday after letting another group of pre-order customers know that they could complete their order to purchase a Steam Deck, which was originally released in late February.

“Production has resumed, and after today we will be shipping more than double the number of Steam Decks each week!” the company tweeted(Opens in a new window). According to Valve product designer Lawrence Yang, the increased shipments will begin this Thursday when the company begins processing Q3 pre-orders a day earlier.

The increased production will hopefully help more consumers get their hands on the PC gaming handheld. If you want to own a Steam Deck right away, you’ll need to head to eBay, where resellers can resell it for sometimes double the normal price, around $1,000.

Valve originally planned to launch the Steam Deck in December. But the company was forced to delay the release for two months due to component shortages and supply chain issues. Fortunately, Valve started ramping up production in April.
