Atari Traps Ghostbusters: The Game?

It's another update regarding Ghostbusters: The Game, even though it's inspired mostly by rumor.

If you're not familiar yet, we'll get you up to speed: the game has been searching for a new publishing home since Activision Blizzard did a little corporate housecleaning, and the title is currently in development at Terminal Reality. They will handle the PlayStation 3, Xbox 360 and PC versions while Red Fly Studios will be responsible for the PS2, Wii, and DS versions. Ghostbusters: The Game features all the main characters from the original 1984 hit movie, and co-screenwriter Harold Ramis is apparently writing the game script with movie co-star Dan Akyroyd. Now, it seems Akyroyd has let the cat out of the bag: according to Kotaku, the actor appeared on Dallas radio station 105.3 KLLI on Tuesday, and he said Atari had picked up the game. It's also "over a year away," and that's the bad news. But we don't have any official confirmation from Atari, which means this gets filed in the ever-expanding "rumor" category for now. Let's just hope Terminal Reality gets this one right, regardless of the publisher...Ghostbusters is supposed to rule.

As soon as we hear anything more about Ghostbusters: The Game - recently referred to as a "third movie" by the crew - we'll make sure to let you know. In the meantime, don't count on the game coming out any time soon.

more than a year out easy, I'm sure. That is assuming they don't cut any corners. But this is Atari.

Hey, let's give Phil Harrison a chance to turn Atari around before we start slagging on them.

This title has been in limbo a long time, isn't grabbing my attention much though, even if I dug the movies when I was a kid. I imagine every time it changes hands the new holder wants to tweak the gameplay. Although, with Akroyd on board you just have to wonder if someone somewhere isn't planning an actual third movie. Let the rumors fly on that one!

I really hope somebody picks up this game, I've really been looking forward to it. I don't see how it can be more than a year away, we had all the merchandising crap over at gamestop in august.
