Valve pulled down Dragon Age 2 from Steam, EA responds
Earlier this week Valve pulled down Dragon Age II from Steam. It was rumored that since the Legacy DLC for the game is available within the game, and not the Steam Client, Valve drop the game completely. The original game in the franchise is still available, however.
EA has just a while ago responded on this matter, the firm did not reveal the specific reason behind all this, and only said it hopes to reach an agreement with Valve in the future.
"At EA, we offer our games and content to all major download services including GameStop, Amazon, Direct2Drive and Steam," said David DeMartini, SVP of Global E-Commerce for EA in an interview to IGN.
"Unfortunately, Steam has adopted a set of restrictive terms of service which limit how developers interact with customers to sell downloadable content. No other download service has adopted this practice. Consequently some of our games have been removed by Steam.
"We hope to work out an agreement to keep our games on Steam."
