Valve also shared that some game developers are continuing to test their games, letting them determine if their titles can be Deck verified before launch. Part of Steam's statement reads:
"It’s also important that we give developers the ability to test their games in order to get that nice green Verified check, so we’ve been sending developer kits out in quantity. We've been approving another wave of dev kits, and hundreds have been shipped out in the last month (and we're continuing to approve and send out even more). Thanks for your patience devs!"
