Original DOOM 3 Back on Steam; BFG Source Release Coming

The Bethesda Blog announces the removal of the original DOOM 3 from Steam is now remedied, and the standalone versions of DOOM 3 and the Resurrection of Evil expansion are now available at a lowered price for those not interested in the DOOM 3 BFG Edition’s release. This will allow players to play online with other owners of the standalone edition, as well as the ability to install the user-created modifications for id Software's shooter sequel. They also reveal that there may be more user content coming to the new edition, as word is: "For players with the BFG Edition of the game, you’ll be happy to know that we’ll be releasing the GPL source code in the near future. Stay tuned for updates."

Next you're going to tell me EA didn't remove their games from steam to bump up sales of them on Origin. Of course, EA paid for that and had to re-up them on steam to placate the masses.
Actually no. EA did not remove them. Valve booted them off because then ran against the new ToS for putting games on Steam. Which was if you offer DLC for a game that is on Steam you MUST also offer the DLC on Steam. EA only offered the DLC via ingame purchased/Origin.

Whenever someone mentions this, other people give several examples of games that do the same thing and are still on Steam so I don't really believe it's that simple.
