It was only a few weeks ago that we were in the midst of the Steam Winter Sale, and now we seem to approaching the kick off to a new one. Like many other platform holders, Valve is expected to host a Lunar New Year Sale on Steam this year, and if you’ve got your eye on a game, you’re probably best off waiting to buy it, as that sale is rumored to kick off very soon.
Next Steam Sale 2021
Steam Autumn sale 2021 Expected to take place between November 24 and November 30 - Every year the Steam Autumn sale takes place for weeks and also covers Black Friday and Cyber Monday, this is one of the best sales for the biggest discounts of the year. There's always multiple major sales during a year, once an exact date gets leaked or known, it will be added here. Other websites put up completely guessed dates to pretend that they know, but we don't do that. Steam Next Fest: June 2021 16 June — 22 June.
How soon? Tomorrow, if SteamDB’s prediction is correct. According to SteamDB, the 2021 Steam Lunar New Year Sale is slated to begin on Thursday, February 11th at 1 PM EST/10 AM PST. It’s important to remember that these times have not been confirmed by Valve itself and that this start time is based on leaks and unconfirmed information, so keep that in mind.
The @Steam Lunar New Year Sale 2021 will run from 11th February to 15th.

With that said, SteamDB is generally pretty accurate when it comes to predicting Steam sales, and Valve has hosted Lunar New Year Sales in the past. With the Year of the Ox beginning on Friday, February 12th, the timing is certainly right for Valve’s 2021 Lunar New Year Sale.
All things considered, this is going to be a rather brief sale. While Valve’s Summer and Winter Sales last for weeks, the Lunar New Year Sale will be wrapping up on Monday, February 15th, giving you the weekend to make any purchases you’re considering. Just as well, this sale will likely be smaller in scope than the Summer and Winter Sales, so don’t be shocked if a game you’ve had your eye on doesn’t get a big discount this time around.
So, we’ll see tomorrow if SteamDB’s predictions pan out (which they likely will). Whether it’s tomorrow or some other day this week, we’ll let you know when the 2021 Steam Lunar New Year Sale kicks off, so stay tuned for more.
Steam's next major sale will be taking place during what Japanese natives call 'Golden Week,' a week that contains many important Japanese holidays. Steam's annual sale starts from April 29 and finishes up on May 6, to coincide with the event.
Golden Week in Japan has a number of important dates associated with it, beginning with The Emperor's Birthday on the 29th of April and finishing with Children's Day on May 5. In celebration of this event, Steam is offering a sale throughout Golden Week with a specific focus on Japanese games. This is something that the platform does annually, with an update to Steam bringing a sale that reduces the prices of games and series developed by Japanese studios.

Steam users who love games from Japanese studios can rejoice as Golden Week approaches, as if previous Golden Week sales are anything to go by, many titles will be heavily reduced in price. Games such as Dark Souls 2 and 3, Monster Hunter World, and the Devil May Cry series are likely to see price reductions, as these titles have been marked down during previous sales. If the 2020 Golden Week sale is anything to go by, gamers can expect to see a number of new releases go down in price, as well as many older games.
If gamers are curious to find out which Steam sale will come after Golden Week, Valve has already announced Steam Next Fest, which many may know as the Steam Game Festival, renamed by the Steam developer to 'more directly communicate its focus' on upcoming games on Steam. Users who take part in Steam Next Fest will be able to play hundreds of demos, watch developers' livestreams, and 'chat with the teams about their games in progress, coming soon to Steam,' according to a post by Valve detailing the event.
When Is Next Steam Sale 2021
Oftentimes it is best for gamers to wait for a sale to buy the game they've been hankering to play, so Golden Week will give lovers of titles by Japanese developers on Steam the opportunity to get their hands on games a little cheaper. Steam is also smart to capitalize on Golden Week, which is generally associated with leisure activities, and was named by the managing director of a film company after ticket sales for his films exploded during the holiday-filled period. Steam's game sales will likely see a similar rise during Golden Week, as gamers perform the ritual of purchasing as many games as they can, whether they intend to actually play them or not.
