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.

It looks like Phil Harrison is doing a bang up job at Atari. He's picked a rather solid lineup of games to publish following the fold of Vivendi.

Hope I'm wrong but I don't see Ghost Busters selling well on anything but the Wii, people would like to bust ghosts with a pretend (what the hell were those things called?) Ghost busting gun-like stick apparatus, but I'm skeptical about it on the other systems. People have kind of moved on, and they don't seem to be doing another movie.

They're called proton packs, though the energy stream had a specific name as well, I think.

I thought the same way, but the Ghostbuster articles on IGN's PS3 site seem to get a lot of hits, so who knows?

Actually, it will be the oppisite. Most GB fans are 20+ years old, and the Wii version of GB:TVG is too styleized for us older gamers, plus, it's geard more towards kids anyway, so I think the PS3, Xbox 360, and PC version will go through the roof, the Wii version will probably do good too, but that will be because of it's $39.99 price, compared to $59.99 for the rest...not including the DS version.
