Capcom has announced that it will be unable to release the PC version of Bionic Commando Rearmed on Valve's Steam service as was originally planned. The reason? Apparently Capcom and Valve have been unable to agree on a few critical issues.

"At the last minute, we've been unable to reach mutually agreeable terms with Valve on BCR, so they won't be carrying it," VP of strategic planning Christian Svensson wrote on the Capcom forums yesterday.

"I won't get into the details but we do continue to have a good relationship with Valve and future Capcom titles we expect to be carried on Steam."

Svensson was keen to deny that the pulling of the title was because Capcom were unhappy with the percentage taken by Valve on all online transactions.

Bionic Commando fans need not worry too much though as the game will still be available for PC over the Direct2Drive service and through Capcom's online store.

Bionic Commando Rearmed is a remake and reimagining of the original NES platformer, but remade in a new engine. The remake has new multiplayer levels and has launched on Xbox Live and PSN already. If you've tried it then tell us what you think in the forums.
