Due to anti-cheat issues, Microsoft has provided a list of titles that will not be available on Steam Deck anytime soon. Games like Flight Simulator, Halo, and more will not be available for now. Other studios like Bungie and Epic games already stated both Fortnite and Destiny 2 will be unavailable to play on the Steam Deck.
However, it doesn’t seem like just an anti-cheat problem. It’s too much for the Steam deck to run behemoth games due to their demanding system requirements. Let’s get to know about all the available Xbox Game Studios titles on Steam Deck.
More about Steam Deck
Valve recently released their Handheld system, Steam Deck, it is capable of handling more demanding games than any other handheld platform on the market. Valve’s SteamOS runs on Deck, but they just revealed full Windows support for it.
It means that titles currently unavailable on Steam Deck may become available in the future. in their recent post via Steam Microsoft quoted about studio “how they fit Steam Deck integration for their games into their busy lives” is up to individual development studios, and that “with a lot of amazing stuff currently in the works some titles may take a little longer.”
The game compatibility of Steam Deck is split into four categories. Verified, Playable, Unsupported, and Unknown, letting players rapidly determine the level of playability they can enjoy. Our existing standards for titles to get a Verified or a Playable rating are very high. If a game shows controller glyphs 99% of the time but tells you to ‘press F’ sometimes during gameplay, that’s Playable, not Verified.
If 99% of a game’s functionality is accessible, but accessing one optional in-game minigame crashes, or one tutorial video doesn’t render, that’s unsupported.
