In 2013 Valve announced its Steam Controller, a Gamepad that after announcement received a lot of revisions, adjustments and even quite obvious physical changes, and finally launched in 2015. However, it seems that the company not finished refining the controller to your liking and early reports suggest that they are already working on a new model for replacement.

Valve is working on a new design for Steam Controller

Till now Steam has sold over 400,000 Steam Controller by itself or either at via retailers, but further improvements could appear in the future, though a timeline is unspecified. This new information is coming from GDC presentation, in which Valve talks about further changing in the design of its controller.

“In the future, we are working on a hardware revision to the controller to improve look and feel. But we’re pretty happy with the feature set we have now and do not intend to drastically change it, or even change it at all. Maybe we’ll throw extra features in here or there, but the controller’s not gonna grow a new touchpad, or a new set of buttons, or a new major feature.”
