The publisher Electronic Arts recently had two games removed from the range of Steam’s online shop. These are the first person shooter Crysis from 2007 and the strategy game Command & Conquer 4: Tiberian Twilight from 2010. If you the respective product pages visited, you will find the complete overview, but there is no longer any way to buy the games. Instead there is the note:
“At the publisher’s request, Command & Conquer 4: Tiberian Twilight / Crysis is no longer for sale on Steam.”
A more detailed explanation for this decision cannot be found there. At least Crysis is there, for example bei Origin or GOG.com continue to be for sale. However, there are among other things at Reddit.com already some speculation around the step of Electronic Arts. In the case of Crysis, the explanation could be very obvious: The remastered version of Crysis was only launched on Steam in September of this year. In addition, the original of the first-person shooter has had some problems to this day, such as obtaining a valid CD key and crash bugs in connection with AMD processors.
In the case of Command & Conquer 4: Tiberian Twilight, the explanations are not that easy. Maybe it’s because the strategy game from developer EA Los Angeles has the fourth worst rating of all titles on Steam. The reviews there are overall “extremely negative”. It is therefore conceivable that Electronic Arts took this as an opportunity to remove the game from its offer. What do you think?
