Ghostbusters Dev Happy With Atari's Plans, Can Add "More Polish"
During the Activision/Blizzard merger, more than a few titles got hung out to dry, although many of them have found new publishing homes. One of these titles is Ghostbusters: The Video Game, which Atari just announced with a tentative June 2009 release date. It's good to be on the publishing path again, isn't it? Just ask the developer.
According to the Videogaming247 blog, Terminal Reality head man Mark Randel is all sorts of happy now that Atari has officially pulled his game from the dark abyss of no-man's land. A title without a publisher is essentially a non-existent title, so it's no surprise to see that Randel is feeling much relieved these days. He said:
"We’re doing great and can’t wait for people to play the game. We are excited that Atari chose to release it to coincide with the 25th anniversary of Ghostbusters as it allows us to give the game even more polish."
It was one of several new projects Atari revealed a few days ago; others include The Chronicles of Riddick: Assault on Dark Athena, The Witcher: Rise of the Wolf (console iteration of the PC game), and Heroes Over Europe. But perhaps we're all being a bit nostalgic by hoping that Ghostbusters turns out to be an entertaining romp through the ghost-infested city of New York. Randel's excited and so are we; if you haven't had the chance yet, be sure to check out the debut trailer, which seems promising to us.
