I can't blame EA for wanting to cut ties with Steam either, who died and made them god of all pc game distribution?

The millions of people who use Steam, I'm guessing. I'm also guessing that the majority of those people only buy PC games from Steam. Unlike Origin, which people only use because EA slaps it onto all of their games, Steam is used because people like it. Yes, Valve integrates Steamworks into their own games too but they only release games like once every three years, so that isn't really enough incentive to keep people on Steam. Most publishers use Steamworks now because that's what consumers demanded.

Like it or not, Steam and PC gaming are largely synonymous these days.
