EA to abandon 'Partners' label?

It's being reported that EA is to close down its EA Partners label, although we aren't sure what this would mean for FUSE and the still to be announced Respawn game.

According to Game Informer, the Partners label is next on the chopping block, following the resignation of CEO John Riccitiello, recent layoffs and the cull of new Facebook titles which were in development.

The Partners label has so far spawned games such as the Crysis series, Shadows of the Damned, Alice: Madness Returns, Bulletstorm, Brutal Legend and of course Rock Band. There are also quite a few titles in development as previously mentioned.

What do you think of this news? What could it mean for currently in-development titles?

i think fuse is too far down the line to be affected! i think anyway! BUT other titles further down the line i think we could say bye bye too, not the biggest loss in my eyes!

I wonder what this means for Fuse? Insomniac are part of the EA partners deal. Hmm, kind of bad news, but EA must have been throwing good money after bad keeping deals open with people like Epic and Starbreeze

It's sad to hear as this is where many of EA's best titles of the last few years have come from, but from a business perspective it's hard to not understand why they'd do this. Saying that, they'd be fools not to follow through on the Respawn deal anyway. Whatever they produce is going to be huge news and almost certain to sell well.

Please describe the nature of the abuse:
