Everyone knows the world loves a good Steam sale. And what’s better than a sale? Knowing exactly when that sale is going to take place. Dates for Steam’s next three sales in 2018 have been recently leaked on Twitter by a currently anonymous developer.
The Halloween Sale is expected to take place from October 29th at 10 am PST to November 1, 10 am PST. The Autumn Sale is from November 21 at 9:55 am PST to November 27 at 10:05 am PST. And everyone’s favorite Winter Sale looks like it will start rolling on December 20 at 9:55 am PST and carry on until January 3 at 10:05 am PST.
While Valve has neither confirmed nor denied these dates, they do line up with previous years’ sales, which makes it that much more likely that these are in fact correct. Additionally, the anonymous developer who goes by Sky Skr GVNG on Twitter has previously leaked dates regarding the Steam Summer sale and things like the Valve moderator changes posted in the developer community.
Kotaku UK's Laura Kate Dale also corroborates the dates of the Autumn and Winter Sale with what appears to be separate sources. She did not in her post have the Halloween Sale, meaning we only have Skr Skr GVNG's report on that at this time.
Traditionally speaking the Halloween Sale is themed with games that are about Halloween or have horror elements. The Winter Sale has, for the past several years, featured the Steam Awards where people can nominate and vote for various games on a variety of awards that Valve puts up. Additionally, many of them have awards of trading cards for going through the discovery queue and provide ways for users to level up their account with badges. Higher account levels can have more friends, which may have more appeal with the newer Steam chat updates over the past few months.
