Not only will you get your Steam Deck by the end of the year, but you’ll be able to see your highly anticipated handheld gaming PC even sooner – Valve just announced that “a lot of people” should see their reservations moved to Q3 instead of Q4, meaning they’ll get an email in late September, if not sooner, to buy the $400-plus portable.

It shouldn’t take much longer to wait after you get that email, either: Valve doesn’t send the emails until the systems are in hand and ready to send. When you sign in to Steam, you can: check your reservation here.

Valve does not share reservation or sales numbers for the Steam Deck, but designer Lawrence Yang tell us the “Q3 crew” should now be “a fair bit bigger” than before.

Valve has increased Deck production by leaps and bounds since its original limited launch, moving to biweekly emails in April, doubling shipments in June, and ramping up again in July. That was enough to promise not only that every pending Deck reservation would ship by the end of 2022, but also start launching in Japan, South Korea, Hong Kong, and Taiwan.

Valve also shared today that it is now Lake reservations on a daily basis than at any time since launch. And yet, even if you waited until today to pre-order one, it should still ship by the end of 2022. New reservations are still listed as “Q4” on Deck’s store page.
