The Steam Summer Sale has come and gone but as we enter the final months of the year, there will be three additional sales coming our way. This week, the dates for the Steam Halloween Sale, Autumn Sale and Winter Sale have leaked, so it is time to get that wishlist populated and prepare your wallet.
The final sales of the year are all taking place in close proximity this year. The Halloween Sale will take place from the 28th of October to the 1st of November, while the Autumn Sale will start on the 26th of November and end on the 3rd of December. Just a few weeks later, the Winter Sale will kick off on the 19th of December and end on the 2nd of January.
The dates this time around were supplied by SteamDB. Valve gives all registered publishers and developers on Steam a heads up on sale dates so that they can set discounts in advance themselves. As a result, Steam Sale dates have leaked for several years now.
We don’t know what Valve might have planned on the event side though. For the Steam Summer Sale, we had a ‘Grand Prix’ event, which awarded free games, Steam credit and other goodies for taking part. That event had some issues, so hopefully there is a better plan in place for the new upcoming sales.
KitGuru Says: There will be plenty of Steam Sales coming up over the next couple of months. Are there any games you’ll be keeping an eye on?
