Re: Games and all things related
EA has just pulled Crysis 2 from Steam so they can offer it through Origins exclusively and the new Alice game will only be on Origins too. Wonder what other games they'll do next.
EA has stated the game's removal was due to an agreement between Crytek and another download service, not a decision by the publisher.
Posted below is EA's statement sent to IGN:
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.
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 Origin.com
