When Are The Steam Sales?

The Steam Sales are a celebrated time of the year by PC gamers, and now by Steam Deck owners. They allow players to purchase a ton of new games that they’ve been meaning to play without breaking the bank and can result in finding some truly hidden gems. These are the current upcoming Steam Sales that we know of:

  • Steam VR Fest 2022 (18 July 2022- 25 July 2022)
  • Steam Survival Fest 2022 (1 August 2022- 8 August 2022)
  • Next Fest: October 2022 (3 October 2022- 10 October 2022)

Then you have the standard major events, of which there are a few left this year:

  • Steam Halloween Sale
  • Steam Black Friday/Autumn Sale
  • Steam Winter Sale

There’s a chance of other sales this year, but they’re currently relative unknowns.

Are There Other Sales?

Throughout the year, Steam will often have sporadic sales too, with a much smaller selection of games. Sometimes there will be a sale based on one franchise, while other times it’ll be a sale based upon a genre of games.
