The email states that the Steam Summer Sale 2021 will begin at 6 pm (BTS) on Thursday, June 24 and will run until 6 pm on July 8. While these dates aren’t technically official, the start of each year’s Steam Summer Sale has typically been correctly leaked for the last few years.
The Steam Summer Sale is a popular two-week event that runs every year and usually sees significant discounts on a variety of games. The vast majority of games available on Steam receive at least some form of discount, so it’s a good opportunity for gamers to pick up their must-haves at a reduced price.
The Summer Sale usually involves some sort of theme that allows Steam users to unlock various cosmetic items or collectable trading cards they can use for their profile, as well.
The start date comes just two days after the end of Steam Next Fest, “a multi-day celebration of upcoming games” that is currently underway.
