Valve’s store confirms when the new Steam Sales are coming and advances the dates of all the sales that will take place between now and the summer of 2023.

 

If, like me, you wait patiently for the Steam sale to arrive before purchasing anything from your wishlist, then you’re in luck. Valve has now listed its Steam sale dates for autumn, winter, and spring, and we can all prepare ahead of time.

In a message on their Steamworks Development platform, Valve has revealed that they are making a huge change to their Steam sale schedule.

The main change is their decision to remove the Lunar Year Sale. Valve started holding this holiday sale in 2016, recognizing at the time was a growing number of developers from East Asia, including China, Hong Kong, Taiwan, and South Korea. Their last such sale was held between February 12 to 16, 2021.

Valve explained that they received feedback that the Lunar Sale comes too close to the Winter sale, which they hold between December to January. For the purposes of game companies providing discounts and promotions, they would want to spread out when they hold those game sales to avoid devaluing their games too much.

When are the upcoming Steam Sales?

  • Steam Fall Sale will run from November 22nd to November 29th
  • Steam Winter Sale will run from December 22nd to January 5th.
  • Steam Spring Sale will run from March 16th to March 23th, 2023

Previously, we had Lunar New Year celebrations on Steam which are now being replaced with a spring sale. Without further ado, here are the dates you can expect your wishlist, and plenty other games, to be much cheaper.

The autumn sale will start on Steam on November 22, running for a week until November 29. As for the winter sale, which is perhaps my favourite for dishing out seasonal gifts to long-distance friends, will run from December 22 to January 5.

As for the all-new spring sale, this one will start on March 16 and run until March 23.

In a blog post regarding the changes to Steam’s four seasonal sales, Valve says that the spring sale is replacing the Lunar New Year sale because, “over the years we’ve received feedback that Lunar New Year was often much too close to the December holiday sale period.”

Valve also believes that some publishers will still opt to discount games around the Lunar New Year, but “we suspect customers will be better served by a little bit more time between the big Steam-wide seasonal sales.”
