It was only a few weeks ago that we were in the middle of the Steam Winter Promotion, and now it looks like we are getting close to kick-starting a new one. Like many other platform owners, Valve is due to run a Lunar New Year Promotion on Steam this year, and if you’re looking for a game, it’s best to wait to buy it, as they say this sale will start very soon .
How long? Tomorrow, if the SteamDB forecast is correct. According to SteamDB, Steam Lunar New Year Sale 2021 is scheduled to start on Thursday, February 11 at 1 pm EST / 10 am PST. It is important to remember that these times have not been confirmed by Valve itself and that this start time is based on leaks and unconfirmed information, so keep this in mind.
That said, SteamDB is generally pretty accurate when it comes to forecasting Steam sales, and Valve has hosted Lunar New Year sales in the past. With the Year of the Ox starting on Friday, February 12, the time is certainly right for Valve’s 2021 Lunar New Year Sale.
All things considered, this will be a very short sale. While Valve’s summer and winter sales last for weeks, the Lunar New Year sale will end on Monday, February 15th, giving you the weekend to do the shopping you’re considering. Thankfully, this sale is likely to be less in scope than Summer and Winter Sales, so don’t be shocked if a game you were looking at doesn’t get a big discount this time.
So, we’ll see tomorrow if the SteamDB predictions will work (which is likely to happen). Whether it’s tomorrow or some other day this week, we’ll let you know when the Steam Lunar New Year Promotion 2021 starts, so stay tuned for more information.
