Summer is an important season for the community of gamers, because this is exactly when the biggest sale on Steam takes place. In all this excitement, while numerous users are already preparing for the shopping, let’s not forget that the Steam Summer Sale has a beginning and an end. We don’t want you to miss it, so in this article we will focus on the timeframe of the upcoming event.
When does it start?
SteamDB announced that a big sale will start on June 21st. From that day, players will be able to buy various games and packages with a wide range of discounts reaching up to 90%. Since SteamDB supports Steam as a third-party application, we can definitely trust their words. In the past, they proved to be a reliable source of information and news related to Steam.
When does it end?
At the moment we haven’t seen any official announcement regarding the exact closing date of the Steam Summer Sale of this year. So far, no updates have been posted by the popular tech news websites and Valve definitely keeps quiet for now.
Judging by a screenshot that was posted on the Steam subreddit, the Steam Summer Sale 2018 will start precisely at 9:55 a.m. PT on 21st of June and it will last until 5th of July, ending exactly at 10:05 a.m. PT. Taking into consideration the timeframes of the summer sales from the past, it seems very likely that the 2018 event will take place within the leaked time range.
It looks like we have managed to find both starting and ending dates of this event. Most likely, it will not take long before all these rumors are confirmed. If proved right, what it means for the gamers is that they will have two weeks to obtain some of the most desired titles available on Steam.
