Steam sale countdown has started, with the Steam Black Friday 2019 start date and time approaching with Steam Autumn sale offers inbound. The next Steam sale is expected to begin this week, with the autumn PC games discounts landing on Steam ahead of Black Friday 2019. Valve don’t announce the dates of when their next Steam sale is, but we have a good idea of when it could be thanks to a major leak. The leak in question already correctly leaked the release date for one Steam sale, and it has allegedly unveiled the dates of two other Steam sales.
These Steam sales are the upcoming Steam Autumn sale – taking place ahead of Black Friday 2019 – and the Steam Winter sale 2019.
These Steam sale dates were allegedly leaked by developers, and the news was picked up by the Steam Database Twitter account.
The Steam Autumn 2019 sale – which begins in the run-up to Black Friday 2019 – is expected to start on Tuesday November 26.
The whenisthenextsteamsale.com website also has pegged the Steam Autumn 2019 sale as starting at 6pm GMT on Tuesday November 26.
A countdown is running until the start of the next Steam sale with a “not confirmed” label next to it.
Speaking about how they calculate the start time for the next Steam sale, the website said: “Valve never announces Steam sale dates up front, but Steam sales return every year in a relatively stable frequency.
“Based on data from the last few years, the upcoming sale dates are predicted.
“These predictions are a combination of the following factors: Dates and months in which a sales started.
“Which day of the week a sale usually starts. How long a sale usually lasts.
“What dates/events a sale generally hits. Times are based on the East Pacific time zone.
“Furthermore the dates are updated every now and then when there is more information in recent news.
“As you can see there are multiple sources to find out when a sale will most likely start.”
They added: “This is a fan-based site which will try its best to help you prepare for the upcoming Steam sales.
“Please keep in mind that Valve and Steam are not involved in the creation of this countdown timer.
“In the end the dates provided by this site are basically a guess, even though it’s an educated one.
“This means that it’s more likely that a sale will start at a different time than the timer says, or maybe even not start at all.
“A small label will inform you whether the date has been confirmed or not.
“You can safely assume that a countdown with a confirmed label will match with the Steam sale time.
“Otherwise it’s a good idea to keep in mind that dates can deviate a few days.”
