The Steam Next Fest has just begun, offering to check out multiple developer livestreams and free demos of upcoming games. The Next Fest will last until June 17, and although it’s not a sale, you might still see some discounts during this time.

The next Steam sale after the Next Fest will be the Summer Sale 2024, scheduled to kick off on June 27 and last until July 11. It’s one of the biggest seasonal Steam sales of the year, so you can expect to see multiple titles, both AAA and not, at a reduced price.
