It seems that Valve has not been very careful with the policies implemented on Steam and that has caused a leak in information about the upcoming sales on this distribution platform.
According to the news, the developers are forbidden to reveal sales information on the platform itself or on their websites. However, nobody mentioned Twitter and that is how this social media channel was used to publish this leak.
This has to be good news for every gaming fan since you now you can start preparing for the upcoming discount periods on this distribution platform. There is no doubt that these sales will be an excellent chance to purchase some great titles at an even better price.
The first sale window starts this month. Steam Halloween Sale begins on October 29th and will last for a total of three days, which implies that it will end on November 1st. There might not be a lot of time to prepare for this promotion, but the second sale will arrive in less than a month. The Autumn promotion is scheduled to start on November 21st and will last for just under a week. It is planned to end on November 27th.
The Long Awaited Winter Sale
The final sale this year will extend into 2019. It is the Winter discount period and it will come just in time for Christmas and the New Year. The beginning date is set for December 20th and the promotional period will last for whopping two weeks as it will end on January 3rd, 2019.
Keep in mind that these dates are subject to change, especially now that they leaked prior to Valve publishing them. However, we are looking forward to no less than three sales windows in an upcoming couple of months. That is unless Valve gets mad about the leak and cancels some of the promotions, but we do not believe that something like that can happen.
One thing is certain – we can expect the Halloween sale soon, so stay tuned for some great games that will be on discount!
