It might take several months before a decision is reached.  Cases are often transferred for various reasons between the centers .  It does not mean anything one way or another in your particular situation.  Just sit tight and wait for the decision.  You can also try to make an INFOPASS appointment to find out the status of your case but if nothing in the system is yet updated, you will not get anything more than the transfer notice you got.
