'PC/360 titles are Microsoft exclusive meaning not on Apple or Linux, meaning the people who own Windows own 360 which still makes it exclusive' ~ Phamous1
The data in the OP is from the client files in Steam that keeps track of all existing AppID's and similar data for Steam. Usually, it gets updated as much as a couple weeks before the actual game(s) show up.
The file has been referenced frequently to predict when and what games will be in the Humble Bundles, for example.
Also, what "DLC" does Crysis 2 even HAVE? Can't imagine what they'd put in a "Maximum Edition"; Sure as heck doesn't have an expansion like Warhead that made up the original Maximum Edition.
Crysis 2 has a couple multiplayer DLCs and the hi res texture pack.

For what it's worth, the Maximum Edition is up on GamersGate now.
Crysis 2 game PLUS…
Retaliation Map pack (4 new maps)
Decimation map pack (5 new maps + new weapons)
Limited Edition unlocks
So basically...A re-boxed version with the DLC (Which I heard someone say they couldn't seem to find/buy separately, in-game anymore), and the Limited Edition "stuff". I'm assuming all this is Multiplayer content for a game they pretty much released and turned hide on multiplayer, leaving it to rot in the cess pool of hackers and then die silently...Soo...why would anyone buy this again? Base Crysis 2 can be had for significantly less, and has even been on sale for less than $10...
EDIT Was going through Steam's Twitter feed and realized that Crysis 2:ME *IS* available on Steam right now:
Doesn't show up on the New Release wall, OR when searching the store for me, but it IS there.
Also says that if you're one of the 5 people that bought Crysis 2 before it was removed from Steam, you get a 50% discount on the Maximum Edition "Upgrade" until June 12th.
Paraphrasing a bit, but that's the gist of it.
SIGN OF ORIGIN SHUTDOWN?
EA-published games Crysis 2 and Dragon Age 2 were pulled from Steam's marketplace due to issues surrounding the titles' in-game DLC stores, a new report suggests.
This feature caused the games to break Steam's terms of service, a source told Rock, Paper Shotgun. Both titles remained available from EA's rival Origin service.
But Crysis 2: Maximum Edition, which includes all of the game's DLC, is now available from Steam. The in-game store has been removed by developer Crytek (presumably because there is no more in-game content to sell), allowing the game back onto Valve's marketplace.
"Changes made by Crytek to Crysis 2: Maximum Edition have brought the game back into compliance with Steam's terms of service," an EA spokesperson said.
Since these changes were made by Crytek it is unclear if EA have any plans to releasing more Game of the Year-style editions which could fit Steam policies - or whether the practice of selling each game's DLC separately on Origin is more profitable.
maybe we'll see me3 on steam one day then
In a $100 Complete Edition maybe, since it would have to be bundled with all DLCs.
Don't be scared of nightmares; make them be scared of you.
Interesting; Amazon just sent me an email a bit ago saying I get $20 off for having purchased Crysis 2's base game several months back.
Not that I'll use it..because it's not that great of game..and it's mostly multiplayer content. But they do seem to be running the same deal at least.
How is the multiplayer on Crysis 2, anyway?
When I stop playing BF3 Origin is coming off and will never be installed again.
