When is the next Steam Sale? Steam Halloween Sale 2018 dates and times
There are a number of Steam Sales throughout the year, but dedicated PC gamers know the Halloween Sale (or Autumn Sale) is one of the biggest ones – just after the epic Summer Sale. It normally takes place in October, but the exact start date is shrouded in mystery until closer to the time.
In 2018, the internet predicts that the Steam Halloween Sale will start on October 26. While this isn’t confirmed, the 2017 Halloween Sale started on October 26 as well, so it’s a good idea of when to expect the deals to start flooding in. This is because the big Steam Sales tend to run for roughly a week, so with Halloween due to take place on October 31 as per usual, it seems likely we’ll see a similar pattern this year.
In terms of timings, Steam Sale deals usually go live at 6pm BST/1pm EDT/10am PDT on the launch date.
We’ll have more information on the Steam Halloween Sale – and all forthcoming Steam Sales – plus news on the best deals as soon as it becomes available.
