Hide your purses, three upcoming Steam Sale dates have leaked

Subject to change.

Here's hoping you've been saving your pennies, as three of Steam's upcoming sale dates have leaked via Twitter.

According to the leak, the very first sale (the Halloween one, of course) will start next week and run from 28th October until 1st November. This will be followed by the Autumn Sale from 26th November and 3rd December, then finally the Winter Sale between 19th December and 2nd January.

This info comes courtesy of Steam Database on Twitter, which has been a reliable source for leaks of this nature in the past.

Those dates come from "multiple developers [who] posted it in multiple places despite Valve asking otherwise, but you know how that goes".

The only thing we don't know exactly is which games will be on offer, but with so many sales in such a short period of time, there's bound to be something we'll all want to splash our cash on.

It's also a great opportunity to try out some games for cheap that you might otherwise not have bothered with, or gather a bunch of fun titles for a Halloween night in.
