Seriously - what gives with the huge delay?

EA have their own download service. There's never used to be many, if any EA games on steam. Maybe it was to get the day 1 sales from their own site?

Probably. Wouldn't let me buy it though due to region issues (currently studying in Japan) so gave up - whereas Steam was nice enough to reroute me to the UK store every time I make a purchase once I emailed customer support to explain my situation. 
 
Tempted to pick it up now though.

I hope there's a steady online community, Blur went dark pretty fast if I recall?

They had it for pre-order on Impulse if I remember. Impulse has pre-orders for all major EA games and Steam usually gets them the week of release. Steam still doesn't have a DA2 pre-order for example... I just don't think EA likes Steam very much.
