Steam Sale Calendar For Rest of The Year!

Valve has now revealed the schedule for all upcoming sales and ‘Steam Fests’ for 2023, which will take place this year.

Links to the documentation (which contains more details and selection criteria) are included in the calendar below. Interested developers can join up and start introducing discounts for almost all events. On the Steamworks Offer Approvals page, you can see upcoming events and which games are eligible to participate in each one.

Steam Seasonal sales:

Seasonal events are held across Steam four times a year. All games that have been released can participate in these sales with a discount.

Steam Themed Sale Festivals:

These festivals have specific selection criteria and are intended to spotlight a particular genre of games. Discounted titles are prioritized during these events, but there is also room for free games, upcoming releases, and demos.

If you’re a developer and haven’t decided yet to enter this event, that’s okay. Because eight weeks before each event, Valve will send email notifications reminders to title developers eligible to participate in events.

Steam Next Fest:

Steam Next Fest is an event held three times a year where fans can try out demos, chat with developers, watch live streams, and learn about games coming soon to Steam. Developers can get player feedback and grow an audience for a future Steam release by participating in Steam’s Next Fest.

The long waited February 2023 edition of Steam’s Next Fest is happening. Valve has announced and opened registration for the next two editions as part of this full schedule announcement. For additional information, Visit Steam Next Fest Documentation.
