EA's Game Removal Was By Steam

CNET gives us the updated scoop on the news sweeping the internet today about EA and Steam

As we reported earlier today, Crysis II and Alice: Madness Returns has been removed off of Steam, though they still appeared on other download sites such as Amazon and Direct2Drive.

It seems this was not EA’s doing but due to Steam’s imposed set of business terms for developers that Crytek could not agree to due to an agreement with another download server.

This is the statement EA released:

“It’s unfortunate that Steam has removed Crysis II 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 II from Steam.”

This would explain why other EA titles were still available on Steam’s platform.
