Steam Deck Designers Want to Try and Make a New Steam Controller

The success of the Steam Deck seems to have emboldened Valve's design team to want to take another shot at creating the Steam Controller.

While the Steam Deck has been quite successful for Valve, the company seems to be keen on revisiting some of its older attempts at gaming hardware, namely the Steam Controller. In an interview with The Verge, Lawrence Yang and Pierre-Loup Griffais—designers of the Steam Deck—talked about wanting to explore the possibility of a Steam Controller 2.

“Yeah, we want to make it happen,” said Yang when asked whether a new Steam Controller could be in the works. “It’s just a question of how and when.” The company itself is still focusing on the Steam Deck, however.

“I think it’s likely that we’ll explore that because it’s something we wanted as well,” Yang said. “Right now, we’re focusing on the Deck, so it’s a little bit of the same thing as the microconsole question: it’s definitely something where we’d be excited to work with a third-party or explore ourselves.”

While this is far from a proper confirmation that Valve might be working on new hardware, it is possible that the company has made some headway into potential prototypes. Whether we’ll see these prototypes ever make it into a full-fledged product release, however, is a question that might take a few years to get an answer for.
