The Steam sale dates for the latest festivities have arrived: the Steam Halloween sale is now live for a four-day engagement.

The spookiest of Steam sales began on Thursday, October 29 at 10am PDT / 1pm EDT / 5pm GMT, and it will end at the same time on November 2. While these latest Steam sale dates are live you'll be able to find savings on a wide swathe of games - that includes plenty of horror titles, but also a general spread of discounts.

Now that the Steam Halloween Sale dates are locked in, previous years suggest we still have two big Steam sales to look forward to throughout the rest of 2020. Here's a quick rundown of when they're likely to occur - these are only estimates based on previous years, and there's a good chance they'll shift a few days one direction or the other, but at least you can start budgeting for them now.

Steam Sale Dates 2020

Steam Autumn Sale 2020 (AKA Steam Black Friday Sale 2020): Last year, this sale went from the Tuesday before Black Friday to the Tuesday after, allowing it to cover Cyber Monday as well. That indicates the Steam Autumn Sale 2020 will start on November 24 and end on December 1.

Steam Winter Sale 2020: Last year, the Steam Winter Sale started the Thursday of the week before Christmas and ended on the Thursday of the week after. If the Steam Winter Sale 2020 follows the same pattern, it will start on December 17 and end on December 31. That said, Steam may extend the end date by a day or two to avoid ending the sale on New Year's Eve.

Steam Sale Dates 2021

Steam Lunar New Year Sale 2021: The Steam sale celebrating the arrival of the Lunar New Year ran from January 23 to January 27 in 2020. Since the Lunar New Year 2021 will fall on Friday, February 12, we can estimate that the Steam Lunar New Year 2021 sale dates will run from roughly February 10 to February 14.

Steam Summer Sale 2021: The Steam Summer Sale is always one of the biggest events of the year for Steam; in 2020, it ran from June 25 to July 9. If it continues to run for two weeks starting on the last Thursday of June, the Steam Summer Sale 2021 dates will begin on June 24 and end on July 8. 

We'll keep this page updated with any Steam sale dates announcements or leaks as they roll in throughout the year.
