Activision cancels release of Ghostbusters

Activision cancels release of Ghostbusters

As of sometime late July, Activision has decided to cancel the release of the Ghostbusters title through the Activation brand. This game is being developed by Vivdendi Games and has been in the works for at least a year or longer. For Activision to cancel it this close to the launch date means Activision must be having some serious internal or monetary issues. That doesn't mean Ghostbusters along with several other Vivendi Games (Chronicles of Riddick and others) won't be released, they just won't be released through Activision.

This likely means that, for the moment, Ghostbusters won't be arriving this fall's scheduled date. However, another publisher could pick up these titles and release them, but this will likely push these titles out until sometime early 2009.
