Although Crysis 2 has been populating store shelves for a couple of months now, you will not be able to find it on Steam. “Why” you ask? Well, up until recently, no one knew. Now we have answers.
Recently, an EA spokesperson explained the situation to Giant Bomb’s Patrick Klepek. It seems that Crytek, Crysis 2‘s developer, had made a deal with another digital distributor for the rights to the DLC. And, because Steam couldn’t distribute the downloadable content, they took down the core game as well.
According to a statement released by EA, they “had nothing to do with Steam’s decision to drop Crysis 2.”
So far, there has been no word as to whether or not Crysis 2 will return to Steam. I think the bigger question is this: will situations such as this arise with future EA — or any publisher’s — titles?
