Steam Sale Dates For Halloween, Black Friday, and Winter Leaked

A chain of events has led to the early reveal of Steam's annual wallet drainers. 


Your wallet or purse probably thought it had a little time to rest before the Steam sales came for its soul. Your wallet or purse is wrong and it is time to panic. The dates for the annual Steam sales for Halloween, Black Friday, and Winter have all sprung a leak, so buckle down and start working on a plan to survive.

Reported by Gamespot, the chain of events that usually start with Valve sharing the dates with developers way ahead of time has led to the inevitable leak and the dates are as follows:

  • Halloween Sale: October 26 - November 1
  • Black Friday Sale: November 22 - 28
  • Winter Sale: December 21 - January 4

You've got a week before the first hits, so prepare accordingly. If you want to take advantage of some current deals, Dawn of War III is 50% off during the free weekend on Steam, the Witcher franchise is on sale across three different platforms in celebration of its 10-year anniversary, and you can get the Steam Link for $1 right now.
