Steam’s iconic Steam Sales are as important to gamers as they are dangerous to my wallet. This year, Steam still has yet to announce three of their sales: Halloween, Autumn, and the glorious Winter sale. Valve may not need to anymore, however, as the dates for these sales may have just been leaked.
Twitter user SkrSkrGVNG, who had access to Valve’s development tools, released the sale dates online following a rather obvious loophole. The tools forbade him from sharing the dates on the Steam Community and his own sites but mentioned nothing about social media. So, here we are.
It does not say I'm not allowed to post it on twitter. It only says about Steam Community & my own sites… ?? pic.twitter.com/xfvNkexECP

The spooky Halloween sale will allegedly take place between October 29th and November 1st, just enough time to get your spook on.
November will see another sale, too, this time from November 21st to November 27th – that’s the Autumn sale. Lastly, there will be a two-week Winter sale to take us between 2018 and 2019. The sale will start on December 20th and end on January 3rd. Praise Lord Gaben.
This isn’t a confirmation of the dates. The leak could be fake and dates can always be shifted around, but it does give us a decent indicator as to when we should expect them. I, for one, cannot wait to waste money on games I won’t have time to play.
