Valve has confirmed that they will be delaying the release of their official Steam Deck Docking Station, blaming the delay on component shortages and COVID-19 related factory closures.

At this time, Valve has not revealed an official release date for their Steam Deck Docking Station, though the company has stated that the delay of their Dock and its related component shortages will not hamper Valve's Steam Deck production plans.

In the meantime, Valve plans to improve the docked experience of their Steam Deck hardware with all USB-C hubs and external displays, giving Steam Deck users a better docked experience using unofficial hubs and adaptors.
