EA Partners Label is Closing

Electronic Arts Parners, which has been the contract-based publishing service for independent developers, is closing down – that’s the word from undisclosed, but reliable sources.

EA has brought us the following great tites (plus many more):

  • The Crysis series
  • Shadows of the Damned
  • Alice: Madness Returns
  • Bulletstorm
  • Brutal Legend
  • The Rock Band series and more.

The news comes right after the departure of EA’s CEO, John Riccitiello, the abandonment of the new Facebook titles from a studio that was acquired for $300 million, as well as numerous worldwide layoffs.
