Shadowbane Finds New Publisher?
9:47 AM | Andy Largent | Comment on this story
While rumor-mongering isn't our usual line of business, an interesting new tidbit of info has been recently posted at Dr. Twister concerning the publisher situation for the MMORPG Shadowbane. As you may recall, Wolfpack, the developer, split from former publisher Gathering of Developers a number of months ago. Now the grapevine is abuzz with word that Ubi Soft might be picking up where they left off, and will become the international publisher for this game. As you know, Ubi Soft are the publishers of titles such as Myst III and Rogue Spear after several acquisitions of smaller game companies.
While very unconfirmed as of yet, this seems to be a likely pairing, and we're hopeful Wolfpack is going to announce a deal with someone in the near future. Several factors seem to make this scenario likely, including a close partnership between Ubi Soft and Swing!, a German publisher who has supposedly secured rights to Eastern Europe distribution of Shadowbane.
