Steam Autumn and Winter Sale 2015 Dates Leaked, No More Flash and Daily Sales
A report from the Steamworks developer group has emerged online, which suggests that the Steam Autumn sale will run from November 25th at 10am PT to December 1st at 10am PT. For the Winter / Holiday sale, the leaked duration is from December 22nd at 10am PT all the way till January 4th at 10am PT.
The Flash and Daily Sales will however be missing from these two particular sales, according to the message, which was earlier picked up on Reddit.
“In past sale events, we’ve asked for two discounts—a duration discount that runs for the length of the sale, and a feature discount that runs in the event that a game is featured on the front page,” the statement reads. “This year, to optimize the sale for customers and to allow us to feature and recommend your products in more ways to more customers, we’re asking for just one discount, to run the length of the sale.”
The absense of the Daily and Flash deals means one discount price will last for the entire sale. So customers won’t have to keep checking out the front page of Steam all the time to see if their wishlist titles got any cheaper that day. There won’t be any excessive discounts that they could miss had they skip a day or two.
Do note that the plan is not official, so take this with a grain of sand. We’ll let you know as soon as the story develops.
