EA and Valve Reportedly Trying to Get Battlefield 3 on Steam
Ever since I heard that Battlefield 3 wasn’t coming to Steam, I couldn’t get my head around that decision. I understood that EA was trying to push Origin, but I couldn’t understand why they’d ignore the massive user base that Steam has amassed. Now, it looks like BF3 may end up on Steam after all.
According to a report on BF3Blog, EA and Valve are in late-stage negotiations to get BF3 on Steam. If this report is true, DICE’s new shooter would hit Steam just in time for its release on October 25. The sticking point, as it has been for sometime, is the sale of DLC content direct to the user, rather than through Steam.
I know a number of you have been very vocal in your desire for BF3 to com to Valve’s service. Many gamers have even stated that they would not buy the game if it was an Origin exclusive. For those folks, this will be welcome news indeed. Obviously, this is all still speculation. If we can confirm any of it, we will, and we’ll update accordingly when we do.
