If you’re one of the many gamers eagerly waiting to get your hands on a Valve Index headset, you’re probably wondering when you can expect it to arrive. Here’s everything you need to know about Valve Index shipping times.

Valve Index Pre-Orders

Valve Index pre-orders have been open for a while now, and they’ve been selling out fast. If you managed to snag a pre-order before they sold out, congratulations! You should be receiving your headset soon.

Early Pre-Orders

If you were one of the lucky few who placed an early pre-order for the Valve Index, your headset should already be on its way. Valve started shipping these orders on June 28th.

Late Pre-Orders

If you placed a pre-order after the initial rush, your order will still be shipped in the order it was received. However, it’s important to note that Valve has warned that shipping times may be longer than expected due to high demand.

Valve Index Availability

If you missed out on the pre-order period entirely, don’t worry! The Valve Index will eventually be available for purchase again in the future. However, as of right now, there is no official word on when this will happen.

Checking Availability

To check if the Valve Index is currently available for purchase, head over to the Steam store page and look for the “Add to Cart” button. If it’s grayed out or says “Coming Soon,” that means it’s currently unavailable.


In summary, if you managed to place an early pre-order for the Valve Index, your headset should already be on its way. Late pre-orders will still be shipped in order but may experience longer shipping times due to high demand. If you missed out on pre-orders entirely, keep an eye on the Steam store page for availability updates.

With this information in mind, you can now have a better idea of when you can expect your Valve Index to arrive. Happy gaming!
