Earlier this year when EA announced that it won’t be selling Battlefield 3 through Steam, the world’s most popular online games distribution platform for desktops, it caused quite a stir among the community. While most folks were nonchalant about the whole issue, a lot of people got upset over the fact that they would have to install another game delivery platform (Origins) on their computer just to play the game (previous Battlefield games could be purchased and downloaded through Steam).
But those problems could be a thing of the past. According to bf3blog.com’s anonymous insider at Valve, the company is in late stage talks with EA about bringing Battlefield 3 to the Steam digital distribution service. Bf3blog.com is reaching out to EA and Valve for a comment on the story, and if it turns out to be true, it should turn a lot of frowns upside down. Steam advocators – keep those fingers crossed!
