RUMOR: Hints That Battlefield 3 May Still Come to Steam

THE BUZZ: At the moment Battlefield 3 is only available digitally via EA’s Origin service, however a few hints may point towards a Steam release occurring at some point.

The first clue comes from a competition currently being held on the Sapphire Select Club’s website which lists one of the prizes as, ”[o]ne (1) PC Game code for Battlefield 3, redeemable for the game on Steam,” this could just be a mistake on their part though.

The second comes from the Battlefield 3 PunkBuster install file, a few lines of code mention Steam:

C:\Program Files (x86)\Electronic Arts\Battlefield 3\
C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\SteamApps\common\battlefield 3\
C:\Program Files\Steam\SteamApps\common\battlefield 3\
C:\Program Files\Electronic Arts\Battlefield 3\

Again this could just be the team not bothering to remove the original lines of code.

EGM’s TAKE: It appears that all the evidence points to a Steam release for Battlefield 3 at some point.

Would you like to see the game make it to Steam? Leave a comment below.
