The application in question suggests that Electronic Arts will likely continue to sell and allow users to play its games through Origin, though it may also offer some connectivity through Steam as well. It would be an interesting move back to the platform for EA, though it would likely result in a boost of profit if those that have refused to utilize the Origin launcher until now all of a sudden had reason again to purchase EA titles on PC. We’ll keep our eyes peeled and report any relevant news as it is revealed.
