Valve: Steam Machines delayed until sometime in 2015

Posted on Wednesday, May 28 2014 @ 13:03 CEST by Thomas De Maesschalck
Valve announced that its Steam Machines are no longer scheduled to be launched in 2014, instead the release schedule has been bumped to "sometime in 2015" because the company needs more time to improve its Steam Controller. It's unknown if this will impact the launch schedule of the Steam Machines designed by Valve's partners, perhaps they will decide to go ahead and launch their models with keyboard and mouse.
We've been getting emails from the Steam community asking us how our in-development Steam Machines are coming along. It's great that you're excited about it, and we know you appreciate it when we keep you in the loop on stuff like this, so we wanted to give you all a quick update.

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.
