EA have clarified that the recent removal of Crysis 2 from Steam was not their decision.
We initially thought that the removal was to help EA promote their new online store Origin. The publisher have since said that “It’s unfortunate that Steam has removed Crysis 2 from their service. This was not an EA decision or the result of any action by EA.”
The rep added: “Steam has imposed a set of business terms for developers hoping to sell content on that service – many of which are not imposed by other online game services. Unfortunately, Crytek has an agreement with another download service which violates the new rules from Steam and resulted in its expulsion of Crysis 2 from Steam.”
“Crysis 2 continues to be available on several other download services including GameStop, Amazon, Origin.com and more.”
Is there a chance these new regulations could affect other games on the service as well.
Thanks to Gamefront for the info.
