Microsoft has explained why Halo infinite is not compatible with the new Valve handheld computer. Many have been anticipating the launch of Steam Deck to play some of your favorite PC games and, although many notable titles are allowed, there are some interesting exemptions. In some cases, games are even playable, but they are not specifically optimized for Steam Deck, which generates performance problems and problems with controls. Developers are expected to continue helping expand the list of optimized Steam Deck titles, but it is possible that some games will never reach the platform.
Xbox confirmed a handful of his games will not be compatible with Steam Deck. Titles such as Halo: the collection of the master chief, Engagement 5 and Halo infinite can not be played at Steam Deck due to your anti-trap system. Unfortunately, not even the campaign modes are exempt from this problem. Less competitive online titles such as Forza Horizon 5 and mar of thieves are playable, but they are not verified by Steam Deck, so players can find problems with these games. You can probably expect many other massive titles online with a competitive game also skipped Steam Deck, but perhaps the developers find a way to admit it later if the demand is there. Bung stated that playing Destiny 2 is not only compatible with Steam Deck, but it will also result in a game ban if players try to play it in the new Valve device.
It is a bit annoying that one of the largest games of 2021 can not be played at Steam Deck in any way. Since the new portable device is more a minicomputer than a traditional console, it is understandable that developers distrust themselves. Players have a lot of freedom to use the machine as they want and until there is a clearly defined way to avoid cheating in Steam Deck, developers will not want to run any risk.
Some players have already received their Steam Deck, but some anticipated orders will not be sent until later by 2022. What do you think about the restriction of some online games at Steam Deck? Let me know in the comments below or contact me on Twitter @Cade_ONDER.
