Steam Controller Delayed to 2015

Posted on Wednesday, May 28 @ 09:30:00 Eastern by Alex_Osborn


If you've been eager to wrap your fingers around Valve's new Steam Controller, you've got a bit of waiting to do, as the release of the upcoming control pad has been delayed to 2015.

According to Valve's Eric Hope, the company is taking some additional time to refine and improve the aforementioned controller, which means the device won't be ready for launch until next year. 

We're now using wireless prototype controllers to conduct live playtests, with everyone from industry professionals to die-hard gamers to casual gamers. It's generating a ton of useful feedback, and it means we'll be able to make the controller a lot better. Of course, it's also keeping us pretty busy making all those improvements. Realistically, we're now looking at a release window of 2015, not 2014.

Obviously we're just as eager as you are to get a Steam Machine in your hands. But our number one priority is making sure that when you do, you'll be getting the best gaming experience possible. We hope you'll be patient with us while we get there. Until then, we'll continue to post updates as we have more stories to share.

Whether or not this means the wide array of Steam Machines, originally set to launch later this year, have been delayed as well remains to be seen. I guess we'll just have to wait a few months to find out, as Alienware is believed to be launching its first SteamOS-based gaming box this September.
