The last time we asked EA it was made very clear that EA would continue distributing games like Battlefield 3 and Mass Effect 3 through the Steam service. However, now Joystiq are reporting that Steam is conspicuously absent from a list of digital services expected to sell Battlefield 3.
Strangely enough, the link provided on the story is now coming up as a 404 error, which is strange. EA has had problems with the Steam service before - Crysis 2 was removed from Steam last month - and we've had numerous different EA spokespersons say a number of different things about that situation.
Does anyone know what the hell is going on over there?
Since we've already had it confirmed that Battlefield 3 is being released on Steam by EA's Senior Vice President of Global Online, we're going to call this a overly safe post by EA - a cautionary measure taken in light of Steam's rules on patches and DLC.
More news as we get it.
