Internal Steam Release Dates Apparently Leaked via API


Gold Member
Internal Steam release dates have apparently been leaked via the Steam API, providing insight on when we can expect some of the most anticipated games to come out in 2022 and beyond.
Behind the scenes, Steam requires developers to set a secret release date. This does not have to be made public as shown in Steam Partner documentation, allowing developers to set a custom string for the release date field that you'll see on a Steam Store page.
Dwarf Fortress, for example, shows "time is subjective" as its release date on its Steam Store page rather than a specific date.

Here are some of the more notable games and their associated internal release dates. Disclaimer: these dates are not guarantees that the game will actually launch at these listed times for reasons we'll detail shortly.

Gentlemen, we can rebuild it. We have the capability to make the world's first enhanced store. Steam will be that store. Better than it was before.
