It's that time of year again - when people start leaking when the next major Steam sales are. There's three left in the year, and the first of them starts this Thursday.
Dates for the next three Steam sales leaked on Reddit over the weekend, and while they were later taken down that wasn't before outlets began corroborating the dates with various sources.
Eurogamer independently confirmed the dates for the Halloween, Black Friday and Winter sales, and shortly after their publication Kotaku Australia was able to corroborate the dates as well.
In Australian time, here are the next dates for the upcoming Steam sales. There aren't specific hours for when the Steam sale will kick off, so the below times are the earliest from when sales will begin (converted into AEDT).
Steam Halloween Sale: October 26 (roughly late evening) - November 1 (roughly late evening)
Steam Black Friday Sale: November 22 (roughly late evening) - November 28 (roughly late evening)
Steam Winter Sale: December 21 (roughly late evening) - January 4 2018 (roughly late evening)
Late evening is around 1900 AEDT / 1700 AWST / 1600 AQST / 1830 ACST at this time, but if sales don't kick off until the early morning then expect starting time will be pushed back a few hours.
