The valve is also missing components

Valve claims that it tried to circumvent issues with global supply chains, but ultimately failed and some components were not available. Valve does not go into details in the email that Steam Deck components are specifically responsible for delays. As a result, the company is no longer able to meet the initial issuance period. Based on current estimates, Valve says that Steam Deck will ship from February 2022.

All pre-orders are delayed by 2 months

From February 2022, Valve will then provide the first pre-orders, because the date only indicates the start of the registration queue. As all booking holders maintain their corresponding delivery position, the delivery of all subsequent orders are deferred accordingly. At the start of the pre-sale, Valve repeatedly allowed Steam Deck to be pre-ordered with time delays, although the planned delivery of many pre-orders wasn’t until 2022. Until these customers were also informed when Steam Deck could be expected, Valve on would like to Reservation dates for all pre-orders will be modified soon. Customers must be notified as soon as a new delivery date becomes available for their order.

We apologize again for not being able to meet the shipping deadline.

As per the current state, Valve does not want to accept new orders for Steam Deck until the second quarter of 2022 at the earliest.
