Valve’s Steam Machine and controller pushed back to 2015

Posted on May 28, 2014 AT 02:20am

In a recent post on the Steam Universe community page, Valve has revealed that its Steam Machine and controller are unlikely to make a 2014 release.

According to Valve’s Eric Hope, a wireless prototype of the controller is currently undergoing “live playtests, with everyone from industry professionals to die-hard gamers to casual gamers.” However, while the testing is generating “a ton of useful feedback,” it’s also keeping Valve pretty busy. “Realistically, we’re now looking at a release window of 2015, not 2014,” Hope said.

“Obviously we’re just as eager as you are to get a Steam Machine in your hands,” he added. “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 this delay will also affect the 14 other companies who are working on Steam Machines of their own is unknown at this time.
