EA Steam Return Hint

A tweet from Electronic Arts adds fuel, or at least steam, to the recent indications that EA Games will be making a return to Steam (thanks DSOGaming). In a bygone time Electronic Arts games were sold on Steam, but that ended when EA launched Origin as their own online store back in 2011. The new tweet offers a visual hint at the return, showing an EA mug emitting wisps of steam. This seems like a pretty straightforward clue, though it could just mean that they really like coffee.

Looks like they picked the wrong week to quit drinking coffee.

What "pain"? EA has been going from revenue record to revenue record. If anything this is a sign of even MORE greed.

This news is missing the crucial info that EA might only be planning to bring back some of their retro back catalog to Steam (like Dragon Age 2) and not any new games.

If they would also bring new games to Steam they might as well kill off their Basic and Premier subs right now. The subscription vault or library would be completely devalued if the titles would not be exclusive to the subscription service.

I am actually surprised that they might even consider bringing back some classics. Old games or not so old... every single exclusive game adds a tiny bit to the value of the subscription. Why they would water down their own services like that I have no idea. Seems like a really dumb business decision to return to Steam for the few pennies these old games will generate while devaluing their subscriptions at the same time.
