After a vague and hopeful launch window of February 2022, Valve has come through, as they have announced that the much anticipated Steam Deck will be releasing on February 25th. If you were quick enough on the draw to be part of the first set of pre-orders, your invoice will be sent out on Feb. 25, where you'll have three days to confirm your purchase. Once you've paid for and finalized your order, your Steam Deck will ship on the 28th. After that, Valve will be sending out emails on a weekly basis for those beyond the first wave of units.
Additional details for the curious:
- We will start sending invites shortly after 10:00 am on February 25th, PST
- Order emails are sent in the same order that reservations were made.
- You can only order the Steam Deck model that you originally reserved.
- Your reservation deposit will be applied to the final price of Steam Deck, and shipping costs are included.
