Some of you may have heard of the Electronic Arts game Crysis 2 as we have been doing our best to provide with news of the game since before it was even released. Today we have yet more news about it this time it involves the fact that it is no longer included on the Steam download service.

The company EA has come forward today to announce that the decision to pull Crysis 2 from the platform was out of their hands and that it was Valve’s decision due to their new Steam regulations.

They felt they had to make this announcement as it was being speculated that EA themselves decided to remove the game to make way for their own digital download service, Origin.

This apparently was not the case and EA have now made that clear. A representative for the developers explained that the reason for the expulsion of the game was due to an agreement that Crytek had with another download service that violates Steam new regulations.

The game is still available to download on other similar services included EA’s Origin, Amazon and GameStop. Do you think these regulations that add exclusivity to Steam could lead to the expulsion of other games?
