Rumour–The Steam Summer Sale will begin on June 23

Look, I don’t have time for more games. Hell, I’m patiently waiting for the usual break in new releases around July and August, just so that I can finally sit down and play some Quantum Break. Once again, it looks like Steam is getting ready to throw a spanner into my plans. But enough about Alessandro, as it looks like we finally have a date for the Steam Summer Sale. Take it with a pinch of salt as usual, but according to one publisher over on Reddit via NeoGAF, the Steam Summer Sale will begin on June 23 and last until July 4:

Steam-Summer-Sale-2015

Confidential my ass. It sounds about right as well, as the 2015 Steam Summer Sale took place from June 11 and June 19 in 2014. Better start clearing some space for that backlog.

      You do remember what releases on the 24th, a day after the sale starts right?

        But… That’s not the point. That’s not sale money. It’s because that game released at that time. It’s coincidental.

      I hate hashtags so much
      But yes. Humble Monthly.
      The humble spring sale, being in dollar, doesn’t work so well. Some of the games that are 30% off are still more expensive than they are new on Steam.

          I limit the DL times from midnight – 6am. So all updates use the free bandwidth, even when automatic, and it also allows me to see what is going to be updated and whether or not its worth leaving it open to do so.

          The problem is that the Steam Summer Sale is like The Luggage from the Terry Pratchett books…

            Luckily it can’t spawn little legs. That could make things strange.

    Is this ‘confirmed’ according to Valve? Because this is the exact start date on the ‘whenisthenextsteamsale’ website that I have had opened since Feb? What can I say? I’m in an S & M relationship with Gaben and his minionites…
