Thumbs up Steam Crysis 2 and EA games are suported read inside

Ok i just got off the phone with EA support the the reson they are pulling games from steam is that they no longer want to work with Third-Party Distributors they have the own online Distributor store that being sead yes they will still support your EA game on steam that they have sold but no new EA games will come to steam thats why the 2 new crysis 2 DLC never made it to steam you have to go into the game and get it from the EA store.

SO YES YOUR GAMES WITH STILL GET UPDATES <--- we will see i hope there no delay in getting patches

He might be confusing it with Battlefield 3, which by the looks of it is definitely not coming out on Steam.

I'm still getting Battlefield 3 though no matter what.

That could sell more than MW3 for sure.

They only pulled Crysis 2. I've also spoken with EA support, they said Battlefield 3 will be available on Steam.

From Pro Gamer,
"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 GameStop, Amazon, Origin.com and more."

You're making this up, my friend. EA officially responded to the gaming press today and indicated that Valve removed the game, not EA.

Valve has not responded to requests by Gamasutra for clarification. An EA spokesperson provided this statement to Gamasutra:

"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.
