Confirming earlier comments by actor Dan Aykroyd, Atari today announced it will be publishing Ghostbusters: The Video Game.
"Ghostbusters: The Video Game is a fantastic addition to Atari's global line-up in 2009," said Phil Harrison, President of Atari parent Infogrames Entertainment. "The title has built considerable anticipation and excitement among game fans for its high quality action and all-out mayhem. There's no more thrilling Ghostbusting experience to be had, short of building your own proton pack."
Ghostbusters was originally a Vivendi Games-published title, but that company dropped the game following the Activision merger. Earlier, Atari signed The Chronicles of Riddick: Assault on Dark Athena, also originally on Vivendi's schedule.
In development at Terminal Reality (PC, PlayStation 3, Xbox 360) and Red Fly (Wii, PlayStation 2, Nintendo DS) and featuring the likeness and voices of the original movie actors, Ghostbusters will be released some time in 2009.
