Huge Steam autumn and winter sales

Written by

Reading time is around minutes.

The Big Autumn sale begins today on Steam. The whole thing will be closed in about seven days and for now it seems to us that the far more serious sales will come around Christmas and New Year. In fact, Valve has confirmed that the holiday winter sale on Steam can be expected between December 20th and January 4th next year. They asked Tamas Bako, CEO at Artery Studios to include their game Secret of Magic Crystals in both the autumn and winter sales and they even gave the exact dates when will it happen. He was keen to share it on the developer diary, so now we know that the autumn sale will take place from November 21st to 27th, while the winter one will be from December 20th to January 4th.

As it's already known that Steam makes big sales for every major holiday and therefore it is not surprising that they are going to continue the tradition. Last year's autumn sale was held in the period between 23 and 27 November. Obviously they can still make a decent amount of money, and of course attract even more buyers to purchase games via Steam, just imagine what will happen if they continue to bring more software in and put it on sale too.

Valve has not officially spoke on the share of the market they hold in the world of digital distribution of PC games, but competitors from Impulse claim that Steam currently rules the scene with a market share of 70%. Now ready your wallets and try to get the games you wanted for so long but were too expensive for your budget.
