Time to start saving – Three upcoming Steam sale dates have leaked

How does three Steam sales before the end of 2019 sound? Well, they are headed our way so you best brace your wallets for the impending hit.

Steam Sales have long been revered for the bumper deals they bring for PC gamers. The big sales usually include everything from popular AAA titles to the quirkiest of indie game – there’s something for everyone.

The leaked dates for the late 2019 Steam Sales appeared on Twitter via Steam Database. The first one is a special Halloween Sale – sure to give you some spooky savings. The sale runs from October 28 to November 1.

Having a Halloween theme, we’d expect the sale to include a ton of horror games that’ll get you hiding beyond rather than playing couch co-op on it – from the latest in spine-tingling titles to creepy classics.

The next leaked sale dates reveal a slightly less exciting theme – but, hey, there’ll still be savings. The Autumn Sale is set to run from November 26 to December 3 – running right up against the Black Friday sales.

Lastly, there’s the Winter Sale. No mention of Christmas but we’d expect to see some festive bargains included. The Winter Sale runs from December 19 to January 2 – giving you time to grab a last-minute Christmas gift or a 2020 treat.

So far these sale dates remain unconfirmed – with no official word from Steam on when they’ll be happening.

The source of the leak did state that their information came from “multiple developers [who] posted it in multiple places despite Valve asking otherwise, but you know how that goes.”

Steam Sales are a pivotal tool for Valve’s storefront in the face of rising competition from the Epic Games Store. Steam has long been dominant in the PC market but 2019 has seen Epic’s store emerge as a potent challenger.

Unlike Steam, Epic Games offers some games for free on its platform and has also begun acquiring the rights to sell games exclusively – such as Control and Borderlands 3.

We’ll be keeping this piece updated with any more information we get on upcoming Steam Sales – including any official confirmation from Valve.
