Ubisoft moves I Am Alive from Darkworks to Shanghai

I Am Alive, the first-person survival game, has switched developers. Darkworks, who had been working on the game for over three years, is out; Ubisoft Shanghai is in. According to a Ubisoft statement, the change is a mutual decision, done "in order to respect the new launch date for this ambitious title" (sometime this fiscal year) and to allow Darkworks time for its "other obligations."

It's likely that Darkworks' contract with Ubisoft is up and Ubisoft decided not to renew it, possibly to keep costs down. The timing is right, considering that March is the original release date for I Am Alive.
