Valve designer Erik Johnson has revealed in an interview with Polygon that Valve will be releasing the CAD files for their upcoming Steam controllers so players will be able to mod and create their own controllers.
In the interview, he said that “We want to release the CAD files for how these controllers are put together.” This means that gamers will be able to create Steam controllers that truly suit them and the Steam community as a whole. The interview also noted that players will be able to configure the Steam controllers buttons, triggers and the touch pads to suit their preferences. According to Johnson “It’s in our DNA to think of how our customers can create value for other customers.”
When talking about the future of the Steam controller, Erik Johnson revealed that Valve won’t be releasing a new Steam Controler till they’re “at the point where there’s a product or some technology or something else that passes the test of us needing to [release a new controller] so that our customers can experience something, that’s when we’ll put out a new one.”
