The 29th of June 2023 marked the beginning of the Steam Summer Sale, which will last through the 13th of July 2023. As soon as it’s over, come back here to begin planning for the next sales influx.
Games of all stripes, from Indies to AAA productions, are eligible for discounts during these events. Be prepared to pounce on any sales that make many recent blockbusters more reasonably priced.
Regarding upcoming seasonal sales discounts
Steam’s sales can be curated or self-served. Publishers can provide discounts and specials for self-serve, including introductory offers, limited-time sales, and personalized price cuts. Curated discounts are those that Valve decides on and offers; they also choose which discounts are highlighted on the main page of promotional slots.
