EA's SVP of Global Online fails to explain why Crysis 2 was removed from Steam

DSOGaming writes: "The interesting part here is that David claims the game was removed due to the fact that they can't provide the experience they want to their customers.

From what I hear it is Valve who removed it not EA.

That's weird... I know people reported there were problems with the Steam version, (mostly regarding Sandbox 3 compatibility), but that's no reason to remove the entire game.

The reason it was removed from Steam was because Crytek had some retarded agreement with Gamespy to be the sole distributor for the Crysis 2 DLC, and that goes against one of Valve's policies.

So it was taken down.

Oh well, that's just less sales for EA then.

This cant be bypasses, ever? Will it ever go back on steam? I dont wanna use Origin, but not because of any bias, i just have like 70 games on steam, so switching is tedious.

Origin is expensive too, £39.99 for BF3!

I preordered on disc for £23
