The next Steam sale is expected to be the Lunar New Year sale. According to SteamDB, it should run from February 11th - February 15th, 2021.

Steam sales are the perfect chance to fill your digital cart with bargains and discover some indie gems at rock bottom prices. To make sure you're ready for them make sure you add any games you're interested in to your Wishlist, that way Steam will let you know when those titles are discounted. Why not let old Gabe Newell do the hard work for you? 

Here's a quick rundown of when the Steam Sales of 2021 are likely to occur - these are only estimates based on previous years, and there's a good chance they'll shift a few days in one direction or the other, but at least you can start budgeting for them now.

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 11 to February 15.

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. 

Steam Halloween Sale 2021: This Steam sale always sticks close to the end of October for obvious reasons.

Steam Black Friday/Autumn Sale 2021:  Expect this to fall around the holiday week, so start keeping an eye out from November 24th, 2021.

Steam Winter Sale 2021: Judging by 202, we can expect this in December 2021.

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