What happened to Mass Effect 3 on steam?

There are only first 2 games, but not 3rd. Anyone know why not??

Yeah Origin happened At that point no more new EA releases happened on Steam. At least not that I'm aware of. We were bitching and moaning about it for weeks back in the day.

Pretty much, now that EA and Valve have starting playing nice it maybe possible that other exclusives will also come to Steam ?

I remember that the breaking point was Crysis 3 where EA was trying to sell in-game content to players behind the backs of Valve which was not allowed. And so they stopped releasing through Steam entirely.

I can't really imagine that their lust for money has diminished enough that they'll consider Steam again for new titles, but for the legacy titles maybe yes.
