Playdate cover availability

I saw the new cover for Playdate. I have one of the early developer Playdates, but would like to protect it with the cover. So, I ordered one. But it says my order is group 5, for late 2022 shipping. Are they not produced yet, or were they just not going to be shipped until regular Playdate orders start shipping?


Most of our covers are earmarked for shipping with the orders that included both a Playdate and a cover, so if you ordered a cover a while after placing your Playdate order (in general), the cover will ship separately in the order it was received.

In your case, the order estimate for group 5 is correct as you already have a dev preview Playdate.

All of that said, we're looking into possibilities to make this better. Keep an eye out for emails/announcements.
