Steam Sale: dates, 2023, schedule

Good news for gamers! Valve has announced the dates of all sales and promotion periods on Steam for 2023! Here are the days to mark with a red cross on the calendar, to stock up on games at low prices!

Steam, the favorite online video game platform and store for gamers, has been running regular sales and promotions for several years – so much so that there are almost always good deals to be had. But if these events generally take place on similar dates from one year to the next, the latter are rarely formalized before their launch. Valve has shared its complete calendar of sales, festivals and Neo Fests which will take place throughout the year 2023. Here are the dates to mark in your diary with a big red cross!

What is the Steam Sale 2023 schedule?

This year, Steam will offer four seasonal events, eight festivals – which highlight a specific category of games that meet a certain number of criteria – and three Neo Fests – which allow you to try many demos, discuss with the development teams and to discover the next releases on Steam, which gives visibility to the different titles, preventing them from coming out in total indifference. Note that Steam's "Mystery Festival" is currently in full swing. Here are all the dates:

  • Mystery Fest: February 20 - 27
  • Spring Sale: March 16 - 23 (major seasonal sale)
  • Puzzle Fest: April 24 - May 1
  • Sports Fest: May 15 - 22
  • Next Fest: June 19 - 26
  • Summer Sale: June 29 - July 13 (major seasonal sale)
  • Stealth Fest: July 24 - 31
  • Visual Novel Fest: August 7 - 14
  • Strategy Fest: August 28 - September 4
  • SHMUP Fest: September 25 - October 2
  • Next Fest: October 9 - 16
  • Return of Steam Scream Fest (Halloween): October 26 - November 2 (additional details to come)
  • Autumn Sale: November 21 - 28 (major seasonal sale)
  • Winter Sale: December 21 - January 4, 2024 (major seasonal sale)

To take full advantage of the sales and other promotions – and optimize your financial cracks – it is recommended to have a regularly updated wish list. Thanks to it, Steam will communicate to you by e-mail when a sales period is coming and especially if the listed games benefit from reductions via a message "your item from your wishlist is on sale!" Sales periods are also the time to take advantage of packs and entire bundles at very attractive prices: the entire Hitman saga at a few euros, different Sims DLC sets, all Rockstar Games titles at -50%... It's now or never!
