EA wants to keep their games on Steam
EA has expressed their wish to find a way to keep their title available through Steam.
Some of their biggest releases of this year so far, Crysis 2 and Dragon Age II have both been pulled from Steam by Valve due to them violating the updated terms of service.
It is also rumoured that Battlefield 3, potentially the biggest game of the year and certainly EA's biggest title of 2011, will not appear on the download service.
EA's David DeMartini said: "At EA, we offer our games and content to all major download services including GameStop, Amazon, Direct2Drive and Steam. Unfortunately, Steam has adopted a set of restrictive terms of service which limit how developers interact with customers to sell downloadable content. No other download service has adopted this practice. Consequently some of our games have been removed by Steam. We hope to work out an agreement to keep our games on Steam."
