The Steam Halloween, Autumn and Winter Sale Dates Have Been Leaked

Hello! My name is Darryn and I…have a gaming backlog.

HI DARRYN!

It all started out innocently enough. I was at a LAN party one night, and this shifty dude in a trench coat came up and asked me if I wanted to “try some Steam”. Honestly, I thought it was just the next evolution in huffing oxygen, but it was something else. I got hooked guys. Steam had me by the short and curlies, and the next thing I knew I was swiping my credit card and buying games that I didn’t even need.

Borderlands 2 for a fiver? I had to have it. The Bureau: XCOM Declassified? I only wanted to own it so that I could make OG XCOM fanboys rage. I was in over my head, the debt was piling up and the backlog of games was getting even worse with every Steam Sale that came along. I’m a changed man now. I’ve got a family (my neighbour’s cat) to look after.

No more Steam sales for me! Oh who am I kidding, I’ll take NBA 2K14 for a tenner because why not? Said mania for sales is kicking into overdrive right now, because someone just leaked the dates for Steam’s next big three sales. Twitter user @SkrSkrGVNG flexed a loophole and some developer-facing access to, to drop the following dates for anyone who happens to be looking for a bargain:

  • Steam Halloween Sale – October 29 to November 1
  • Steam Autumn Sale – November 21 to November 27
  • Steam Winter Sale – December 20 to January 3

It’s worth taking all this with a pinch of salt of course, as Steam’s regular big sales are seldom advertised ahead of time and usually arrive in the same manner as a Randy Orton RKO finisher: From outta nowhere. Still, with October 29 just around the corner, it won’t take long to see if these rumours have a grain of truth to them.

Now what games are you hoping to buy and never play, condemning them to life in a pit of dusty old backlog games?

    Since they dropped the flash sales, Steam sales have become frightfully boring. Haven’t felt the need to go broke with a steam sale in aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaages

      For me it’s been the Humble Monthly that’s killed most of my sales purchases. I don’t really feel the lack of gaming options.

    I changed my mindset. I realized most of the games I buy on a sale I never play so why bother buying them?

    I too haven’t gone crazy on these sales in a while. I have such a backlog of other games, unless it is a game that I have been hotly anticipating, they will always go on special at a later date.

    Have a few things on my wishlist but it’s games that I would like and not exactly dying to get or anything like that.

    Also if the game I want is not 75% or more off, I’m generally not interested.
