If you are holding off on buying any games and saving your cash for the next Steam Sale, then we have good news for you. Today, someone leaked the sale dates for Steam’s ‘Lunar New Year’ event.
Over the last few years, Valve has made it easier than ever for developers to get their games onto Steam. However, this also grants these developers access to Steam’s private developer forums, where Valve makes announcements for things like upcoming sale dates, allowing publishers an opportunity to prepare their discounts in advance. As SteamDB tweeted, the next Steam sale will be the Lunar New Year sale, which will run from the 15th of February until the 19th.
The next @steam_games sale is Lunar New Year Sale and will run from February 15th to 19th.
Thanks to Steam Direct, it now takes less than 5 hours for that information to leak.

This is a shorter run compared to most Steam sales. However, given that Valve has removed Flash Sales, you no longer need to worry about cheaper prices coming into play later on. So if you have anything on your wishlist, you can pick it up at any time during the sale without worry.
KitGuru Says: I didn’t really pick anything up in the last Steam sale, though I do have a few games on my wishlist at the moment that I want to pick up. What are you hoping to grab in the next Steam sale?
