Valve shared a reflection on where things stand with the Steam Deck a month after release.
There are now over 2000 Deck Verified titles listed as fully supported. Some other games may run but may not have full certification yet. Valve says they’re continuing to work on fully supporting more games, but are also asking for feedback on whether or not a particular title deserves the Deck Verified title. (We recently examined several MMORPG and MMO-like titles to see how well Steam Deck handles them).
One particular issue that has come up a number of times in relation to Steam Deck and running a game this way, essentially on a remote basis, is the use of anti-cheat technology. Bungie is a company that has specifically said destiny 2 not compatible on Steam Deck as they need to run their own anti-cheat and be able to control the environments to ensure safe and fair competition. Trying to run a game like destiny 2 on Steam Deck could even be sanctioned.
In the update post valve names elden ring and Apex Legends As two titles that are incompatible according to Steam Deck anti-cheat services, BattlEye and Easy Anti-Cheat have a way for developers to support their technology and Proton and Steam Deck. They say work in this area will continue as their goal is to continue expanding the Steam deck library and are working to specifically address this issue.
They have also worked with Microsoft to enable Xbox Cloud Gaming for Steam Deck users running the Microsoft Edge browser. This also required working with the Google Chrome team as Microsoft Edge is based on Chromium and the result is native controller support that you can work with in a browser.
