As a result, it has now sent out all its emails to those in the Q3 bracket of reservations, and is now getting a headstart on those in Q4.

"We've updated the store page to reflect this, with an updated bucket description: September-December," Valve wrote in its post.

This news follows on from Valve assuring its community that those Q4 emails "[were not] a mistake" earlier in the year.
