Like others have pointed out:
The contract breech was between Crytek and Valve, not EA and Valve.
EA isn't at fault here, Crytek is in violation of Valve rules. DICE could be also, thus no BF3 pre-order yet.

Crysis 2 DLC is bought in game, Steam doesnt get a piece of that. If they recently rewrote the rules for Free to play games to sell through that. Perhaps they said hey crysis 2, you need to sell your DLC through us in a shop, or else we wont let you sell it.

This seems to be possible with EA saying recent rule changes forced steam to remove the product. Then the fact that The new crysis map pack just came out now and we have the problem.

Alice has also gone missing. Anyone own it know if DLC is purchased in game, similar to crysis? Alice is currently available on origin with the original free.
This theory is plausible, but I'll have to wait until we know which rules were violated.
It better not be DLC profits, or that will be the most greedy move in a long time.

Ive had somewhat of a grudge against Steam ever since APB wouldnt be refunded through them... Which it should have... Even if it was a kind gesture on their part.

Origin isnt bad, its just so far behind steam that its lacking in areas.

Sigh. -1 for Valve. I thought they were the good guys.

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.
I'm assuming that simply having a contract with another service violates those new rules, or perhaps something about giving Steam a better price.

CryTek did not break any rules. Steam imposed new rules AFTER CryTek had their contract in place.

I'm not so sure about that, there's a couple of GFWL titles that contain DLC that can only be purchased on GFWL, say, Bioshock 2 for example, and afaik, the game is still sold on Steam...

The whole good guys/bad guys thing is incredibly silly and borderline childish. These are business and EA, Valve, and Crytek are going do whatever they can to make the most money. These companies are not your friends.

That being said, I feel that it is impossible to form an opinion on this until we hear what was changed about the rules. I have a odd feeling that if Valve really made some new evil, draconian, money-grubbing rules that it would effect more than just Alice, Crysis 2, and Star Wars. This is more than likely an unfortunately combination of circumstances that has forced a few games off of Steam.
