Valve Accidentally Leaks Dates For Steam Summer Sale 2015
  |  @   |  

Gabe Newell and the team at Valve have accidentally leaked the date for the start of Steam’s summer sale, according to PC World, which reports that it will be June 11, 2015.

Now this news comes with a couple of grains of salt. The information was apparently caught by IGN’s Russian contingent as the news was posted on Valve’s official social media presence on Russia’s equivalent of Facebook called VKontakte. Now that seems shady, but it was the “official” page for Valve, so there is some credibility there BUT (and this is a potential game changer) the date in question is also earlier than normal for the event. Typically, this sale comes around late June and early July and here it would be a couple of weeks early.

It’s pure speculation at this point, but signs would suggest that Valve/Steam are getting a jump on the competition. Of late, a lot of alternative game services have tried to launch their own big sales events for games and software to get in on the action and frenzy stirred up by Newell and his team.

Either way, it’s best to prepare your wallets accordingly and get your wishlist updated. You’ve got two weeks.

Summer Sale is coming.

  1. Valve never “accidentally” leaks anything. You know how they love to let the community hype stuff up for them.

  2. I’m waiting for Sony and Amazon to move up their sales to the 11th and watch Steam stick with the end of June. Gaben is tricky like that sometimes.
