Is there proof that there is a encore sale tomorrow?

People keep saying there's a encore sale on tomorrow, any proof?

Last day of sales are typically Encore. There is no proof it will be an Encore sale, but there IS proof that sales continue tomorrow from the ticket page.

No proof but Valve has set a precedent with previous sales when the last day became an encore day. The encore day would feature the top best selling games from each sale day and place them back as dailies.

Tomorrow could very well be new deals but based on past sales, there is a very good chance it will be an encore.

There are 11 days, and 11 sale boxes, which to me, backs up the prediction that there will be a 'best of sale' sale

its kinda stupid tho. why put the best sellers up again.... they fact that they were the best sellers implies most people who wanted the game got it already :/

They should have a pre-order sale.

With everyone buying the games on sale, they have all these games to play now. A pre-order sale would give a slighter discount to games not released yet.

As an added bonus to steam some people with OCD might be inclined to play their games and try and get done with them before their pre-order purchase is released.

I think tomorrow will be an encore sale, mostly due to the fact that i always suspected that Portal 2 would be on the last day of the regular daily sales, i just figured they would save it for last. And honestly, how many major franchises on steam hasn't had a major daily sale yet?

Most of the games up today are relatively new. They would save these for last (Portal 2, Terraria, Duke) in an effort to make as much money as possible.

I think there is an extremely strong possibility of an encore sale tomorrow.

Other than the fact that the last day of every past five or so major sales has been an encore day?
