EA has said the removal of Crytek’s Crysis 2 from Valve’s Steam service was not its doing, but the result of a rule violation on the download store.

Earlier this week Crysis 2 disappeared from Steam, sparking rumours that EA was to make its titles exclusively available via its Origin store.

“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,” EA told IGN.

“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 Origin.com.”
