The average PC gamer pays for their own personal Christmas every time a Steam sale shows up. People often try to plan for them financially, but when they happen, it’s a frenzy, and many gamers are willing to spend at least a fraction of their life savings on it. From new games priced way too low to classic titles at roughly the price of a McDonald’s value pick, if they had a physical stock, it would be gone in moments. It looks like we get to plan for the remaining 2018 sales, though, thanks to a legitimate leak that reveals exactly when they’ll happen.
Speaking to Kotaku UK, a verified anonymous developer shared screenshots of the sale’s internal settings, which show the exact date and time they are expected to go live, and the final day of the sale. The Autumn sale will run for one week, from November 21st at 9:55 AM to November 27th at 10:05 AM—right in time for the Thanksgiving and Black Friday weekend. The Winter sale, on the other hand, will last two weeks, from December 20th at 9:55 AM to January 3rd, 2019, at 10:05 AM. These times are expected to be in Pacific Standard Time, as that is the location of Valve’s headquarters.
