EA Partners program breaks up

, | Games


Game Informer has been told by their sources that EA Partners label is being shut down. The label, meant to provide publishing services for third-party developers, was responsible for publishing and distributing Bulletstorm, Kingdoms of Amalur: Reckoning, the Crysis series, and Valve’s Orange Box, Portal 2 and Left 4 Dead titles on consoles. There is no word on how the shut down would effect Insomniac’s upcoming multiplatform shooter, Fuse, which is using the Partners program.

The move is likely the result of EA wanting to trim expenses in the wake of their disappointing year-end results that forced CEO John Riccitiello to leave the company in March.
