Nowhere in the whole article is Massey Ferguson even mentioned.
There is definitely something going on about phasing out the Massey name.
They are discontinuing the Challenger 600 series tractor I am told, but not the Massey equivalent. So I would say they aren't going to phase out the Massey name based off that.

My local challenger dealer just told me that nothing is being discontinued from the challenger tractors. I wonder if Agco really knows...

We shall see. I've owned both red and yellow ones and they both work the same. Not too concerned myself.
