Although this is not yet confirmed, the website does provide decent insight into when the annual Holiday Sale, Summer Sale, Halloween Sale and the Autumn Sale begins.

“Valve never announces Steam sale dates upfront, but Steam sales return every year in a relatively stable frequency." the site explains.

“Based on data from the last few years, the upcoming sale dates are predicted.

“These predictions are a combination of the following factors: dates and months in which a sales started, which day of the week a sale usually starts.

“How long a sale usually lasts, what dates/events a sale generally hits, times are based on the East Pacific time zone.

“Furthermore the dates are updated every now and then when there is more information in recent news.

“As you can see there are multiple sources to find out when a sale will most likely start.”

We'll be sure to update Steam fans on the next Steam Halloween sale as we approach the end of October.
