The Steam Deck Docking Station has suffered a delay, according to a blog post shared by Valve yesterday. Valve has blamed parts shortages and COVID closures for the accessory’s setback, noting that it’s “working on improving the situation” and will share more info when it can. That said, there’s no indication of when the Docking Station might begin shipping out to Steam Deck users who are interested in getting one. The Steam Deck Docking Station allows users to prop up their Steam Deck and features a range of ports that include HDMI 2.0, DisplayPort 1.4, Gigabit Ethernet, and 3x USB 3.1. Valve continues to warn on its official Steam Deck tech specs page that these specifications are still subject to change.
Hi all. Due to parts shortages and COVID closures at our manufacturing facilities, the official Steam Deck Docking Station is delayed. We’re working on improving the situation and will share more info when we have it. This has no effect on production schedule and reservation windows for Steam Decks (different parts, different factories).
In the meantime the team is continuing to work on improving the docked experience for Steam Deck with all USB-C hubs and external displays.
