Steam Sale Dates Leaked By Developer

Valve sent out a list of all upcoming Steam sales to the developers and publishers they've partnered with, and one of those devs anonymously leaked the entire list to Reddit (via the account u/Barbaricliberal).

Here is the list of dates they provided:

  • Mystery Fest: February 20 - 27
  • Puzzle Fest: April 24 - May 1
  • Spring Sale: March 16 - 23 (major seasonal sale)
  • Sports Fest: May 15 - 22
  • Next Fest: June 19 - 26
  • Summer Sale: June 29 - July 13 (major seasonal sale)
  • Stealth Fest: July 24 - 31
  • Visual Novel Fest: August 7 - 14
  • Strategy Fest: August 28 - September 4
  • SHMUP Fest: September 25 - October 2
  • Next Fest: October 9 - 16
  • Return of Steam Scream Fest (Halloween): October 26 - November 2 (additional details to come)
  • Autumn Sale: November 21 - 28 (major seasonal sale)
  • Winter Sale: December 21 - January 4, 2024 (major seasonal sale)

It's quite surprising that Valve sent this list out so early. They must have known that their security measures weren't perfect, and that someone would leak the dates like this. Ah well, at least now we all know when we can pick up some more cheap games.

What do you want to see pop up in one of these sales? Maybe this year's Game of the Year?
