Default The Battlefield series and Steam

Why on earth does Steam not have any battlefield game!?
Do you think there is a slight chance they might get battlefield heroes,
battlefield 1943, or bad company 2?

Heroes will be a free download, so will never be on Steam. It's supported by purchasing costumes/upgrades from their store.

Can't tell you about the other ones. Isn't Bad Company console only?

Heroes is supposed to be free to download, free to play. I'm in the beta, it's very cartoonish, with only 3 maps. Honestly, I wouldn't pay more than $15 for it if it was sold. That's what BF:1943 is supposed to be, a $15 download, and it only has 3 maps which are straight remakes of BF:1942 levels with updated graphics.

bf is owned by EA and EA has their own digital distribution so it will never be on steam as long as EA has their own digital distribution.
