Valve makes it clear that it intends to create Steam Deck 2, but it is unlikely to happen in the next few years, writes The Verge.

By creating a more powerful portable gaming system, the American developer wants to raise the bar. But it wants to make a leap in performance without significantly reducing the system’s battery life. Therefore, this could potentially happen at the end of 2025 or later.

“I don’t anticipate such a leap to be possible in the next couple of years,” said Steam Deck developer Pierre-Louis Griffe.

As a reminder, Steam Deck was announced in the summer of 2021 and released in February 2022. This year, it became known that Steam Deck would be officially sold in Ukraine, with ERC acting as a distributor and Rozetka as a seller. The Steam Deck 64 GB is now available – its price with a 12-month warranty is 26,999 UAH.
