Developers Declassify Discount Dates
It seems that the next three Steam sale dates have been leaked by multiple developers. Although Valve asks them to keep these dates confidential, the sheer volume of game developers on the digital distribution platform means that it's nigh-impossible to keep interesting information from getting out. Now, we know when we should be holding onto a few bucks to get the best discounts.
Steam DB reports that the dates for the Steam Halloween Sale 2019, Steam Autumn Sale 2019, and Steam Winter Sale 2019 have all been leaked. Get ready to spend more money than you probably want to!
The Steam Sale Dates for 2019 Revealed
Here are the dates for this year's Steam sales according to Steam DB:
Steam Halloween Sale 2019
- Monday, October 28, 2019–Friday, November 1, 2019
This particularly spooky sale has a certain focus on scary games, although that doesn't stop many developers from giving out discounts!
Steam Autumn Sale 2019
- Tuesday, November 26, 2019–Tuesday, December 3, 2019
An appetizer of sorts for the Steam Winter Sale, this Thanksgiving-themed Steam sale is running a little later this year! Last year's sale ended on November 27, but this year's sale is starting on the 26th — probably to take advantage of the later Thanksgiving.
Steam Winter Sale 2019
- Thursday, December 19, 2019–Thursday, January 2, 2020
The big boy, the sale to end all sales, the Steam Winter Sale. The 2019 edition of the store's biggest discounts will start on Thursday, December 19, 2019, and end two weeks later on the second day of January 2020.
The leak of this year's sale dates echoes a similar event last year. While Valve would very much like developers to keep these dates a secret, it seems that it's unlikely we'll be surprised as often as we once were.
What games do you hope to pick up on these Steam sale dates later this year? Are you going to buy anything during the Halloween or Autumn sales or will you simply wait for the Winter sale? Let us know in the comments below!
