Valve has released ‘hundreds’ of Steam Deck developer kits in the last month, and remains on track for launch in February

According to the latest update from Valve, Steam Deck will not only be shipped on time (“Despite the global pandemic, supply and shipping issues, it looks like we’ll be able to start getting these out the door by the end of February “), but lots of game developers will have their own test decks in advance to ensure their games are fully compatible with the handheld device.

Valve’s Deck Verified program will tick games that meet their Steam Deck compatibility categories, including full controller support, as well as support the standard 1280×800 or 1280×700 resolutions with readable text. A look at Portal 2 in SteamDB shows that it is already set up for a Steam Deck compatibility assessment, which will probably soon be visible in the storefront.
