Valve has confirmed that production of the Steam Deck has gone better than expected, and so even more (yes again) people will be seeing their emails to purchase one.
This has happened multiple times recently, so things are going very well over at Valve. Back at the end of July Valve announced they had sorted issues with their supply chain, then in the middle of August they also announced the number of emails going out was increasing.
Now we're back again because developer Lawrence Yang mentioned on Twitter yesterday:
Hi all, a few of you may have received an order email for your “Q4 window” Steam Deck reservation today. This wasn’t a mistake! Production has outperformed our estimates, and we’ll be moving more Q4 folks into the Q3 window.
Official announcement and info coming soon. 🎉
No other announcement has arrived yet, so likely an official Steam news post coming later this week. As a reminder, emails to purchase a Steam Deck go out every Monday and Thursday. Update: Yang also clarified on Twitter the reservation dates haven't been updated just yet.
