Valve has officially announced that the highly-anticipated Steam Deck will finally be launching on February 25, 2022. While many of you may get excited about finally getting to play your Steam library on the go, February 25 isn’t the date when many will be receiving their units.
Valve has clarified a few details with the following statement aimed specifically at those who have already placed a reservation for the device:
On February 25th, we will be sending out the first batch of order emails to reservation holders. Customers will have 3 days (72 hours) from receipt of their order email to make their purchase, before their reservation is released to the next person in the queue. The first units will be on their way to customers starting the 28th, and we plan to release new order email batches on a weekly cadence.
Despite that, February 25 will still be an eventful day as the press review embargo will be lifted on that day, so you can expect in-depth impressions and reviews to give you an idea on whether the Steam Deck is indeed worth your hard-earned cash.
