As some people have wrongly pointed out Pre order games, pre ordered through steam, show up in your library when you purchase them. For example of Prey in my library:

Prey in library

I like to pre-order games every now and then if I like any bonuses, I'm interested in the game, it's on sale etc. I usually keep a bit of money around in case there is a game that is coming out that I like the look of and buy it. For these reasons I tend to have a few games on pre-order at any one time.

Is there anyway I can search my library to find games that are on pre-order automatically?

I could add them to their own category but that depends on me remembering to do it and won't work for games in the past if I can't remember where they are. So I'd like a built in way, if there is one.

I've the same problem as you. I couldn't find a really nice solution to this neither. The current way I use to do it is using a category for pre ordered games.

Sometimes I forget to add them to it aswell. For this case I use this website to sort my games by release date. Then I add them to the category.

Currently there isn't a built-in way to sort them. Another way you could try is using the software depressurizer. This allows you to automatically sort your games - even by release date.

  • I appreciate you can do it this way, as I mentioned in the OP, but I was really looking for something to do it for me. Apr 26, 2017 at 13:27
  • Also might be a bug with that website because it shows some of my games on pre-order but not all of them Apr 26, 2017 at 13:30
  • This is strange. I added another possible solution. Apr 26, 2017 at 13:32
