Steam’s Black Friday sale dates have leaked once again. These things have developed a pretty consistent habit of being leaked ahead of formal announcements, so everyone kind of expects it at this point. A tweet from Steam Database (@SteamDB) has once again provided the detail that everyone craves, revealing that there are two different dates headed our way. And for good news again, one of them is quite close. It’s very important to take this information with a big grain of salt though, as even though these dates always leak from some source, they could always be wrong.
Steam sales are always a huge deal, as the massive discounts and sheer volume of them makes many people recklessly open their wallets to buy games. That effect is amplified with the holiday season though, as the whole thing is pushing constant attention onto deals, sales and discounts. Tons of different retailers have jumped on the Black Friday/Cyber Monday bandwagon and begun debuting their own Black Friday sales, including Nintendo, Target, Walmart, and Best Buy.
Target and Walmart, being more on the click-and-mortar side, are pushing out both physical and online deals. Nintendo Switch titles and bundles are being offered. Xbox One and PS4 console bundles are in the sales papers too. There are plenty of single games being discounted as well, like Call of Duty: Modern Warfare for $38, Borderlands 3 for $28, and Control for $25.
Steam’s remaining 2019 sale dates:
Autumn sale: Nov. 26 – Dec. 3
Winter sale: Dec. 19 – Jan. 2
Seeing that the sales are only a bit away, PC gamers are very excited about the prospect of major deals on various PC games. The games that will be on sale with Steam haven’t been revealed yet, although that’s just an encouragement to go update the wishlist for me. So head over to Steam and comb through the titles you’re interested in so you can wishlist them for easy access when the sales do begin.
