Is Hades 2 coming to Steam Deck?

So with the game already launched for early access on Steam, there comes the question: Is Hades 2 coming to Steam Deck? 

Yes, Hades 2 is also available and verified on the Steam Deck. As the game has minimal hardware requirements, the Steam Deck can run the game without issue.

Players can find in the Technical Test Update post for Hades 2 back in April the system requirements needed to run the test. This includes the Steam Deck which further backs up that the game is playable on the device.
