today when i was at work (im a manager at a gamestop) we received an email saying that activision blizzard decided not to publish it, so anyone who reserved it was going to get a call either yesterday or today saying the same thing, and to either go get their money back for the reservation or switch it to something else.

major bummer, as i was looking forward to playing this game. :uzi:

Why the hell would they not publish it? Can the developer find a different publisher or does Activision own the rights? I haven't been paying very close attention to this one, other than it's Ghostbusters and looked sweet.

*cries* Sierra was to one that got the rights to make it and I thought Activition bought out Sierra? Well, because they cancelled it they just lost alot of money for this. The game was finished and the only thing that they was deciding was how to package the game. I almost cried when the person up at gamestop showed me the e-mail the was sent out. I think its up to Sony now since they own every right to it.

God, if people would just read the internet news you would all clearly see that IT IS NOT CANCELLED ! it has just been put back till 2009 cos they now need a publisher to release it. I made a thread about this the other day saying that Sony might become the new publisher and it would become a PS3 exclusive.

Shops have been told its cancelled till further notice NOT FULLY CANCELLED ! Shops cant have a game on for preorder when the makers dont even know when its out/ if its out.

I stopped reading internet news when I saw alot of false information. I believe in game stores that actually know what is going on GameInformer, OXM, and words from the mouth of god(the game companies) but all I can do is hope that they are true about it being released on the 25th aniversary.

^^^ Believe me game stores are the last people to find out about stuff and half of the people that work for games stores dont even have a clue about games (no offence to anybody). I remember one time we got an email saying that a certain game was cancelled (cant remember the game it was a few years ago) and then we got it in stock ??? lol customers were pissed.

Cheers for clearing that up lol.

Would be nice to see the game finally come out, all the news of cancelling ect. must be hard for fans. I do wish for it to come out on the 360, could be easy gamerscore. :p

1) The gamestop I go to have two idiots working there and one person who is a true fan of games and knows what they are talking about and hasn't been wrong yet.

2) Some are achievement whores, some are not, and some are in between. If I want to play the game I'll play but would like to get the achievements with it as I'm playing.

It's like the game 'Highlander' they are in limbo. Who knows when or even IF they will be produced. Personally I got My money back and when it is announced that they are going to acctually do something i will reserve them again.

They could be this way for a LONG time....or it could be that they are just in "finished game" limbo for a short while.

Hoping for the later....

I too had Highlander preordered. It seems like someone hates the 80's so thats why they are cancelled for not. Highlander was my #2 of top games I'm looking forward too and Ghostbusters was #1. Its really depressing this is happening.

When I got the call from Gamestop, I took my 20 dollars off of it and put it on Gears 2. I guess I'll just pre-order it again around january or so. Also, I think it's cool how Ackroyd and Ramis wrote the storyline just like they did the movies.

It doesn't really make sense to cancel a game that had so much money put into it and was in production for like 3 years. I mean that would actually cause them to lose money. I don't really understand the motive about doing this. I mean it's not like every 360 owner that saw the movie won't get this game.

So this game is definately coming out then? Has it got a new developer or what? Can't say this is on the top of my list when there are so many great games in October/November but I'd probably buy it cheap in spring or something

Wow, old threads with old info.

Yeah, when the Activision Blizzard merger happened they wanted to cancel Ghostbusters, but Terminal retained the developer rights, so it's still being made, they just don't have a publisher. So in short, the game exists, just no ones fronting the money to burn the discs and ship them out.

It's still a few months away from being finished developing, so a publisher isn't needed right now, as there's enough underground word of mouth advertising for the game, plus it was in last month's Game Informer.

Haha, this post made me laugh.

I enjoyed the film and love the theme, and a game sounds really interesting. Look forward to seeing it hit the shelves in the stores, so I can buy it online and not from a store shelf :P

I don't know about the US or the UK, but here in Canada we have a store called Futureshop (which is owned by Bestbuy) and I was told from a friend working there that the game is going to be released on June 30th, 09. not sure on how reliable this is, so I checked their website and it is listed as released that same day. Here's the link:

http://www.futureshop.ca/catalog/subclass.asp?catid=23356&mfr=&logon=&langid=EN&sort=0&page=2

It's not writen in stone, but it looks better than cancelled.

FX.

Also, the end of the new trailer in the above post says June 09, so I think there is a good chance we'll see it then. *fingers crossed*

So glad they got the original voice cast in (except Rick, whos films I love, alongside Bill Murray, but I suppose they could just write his part out :(). gonna pre-roder this as soon as I can.

In the OP's defense, the game WAS dropped. The developers had to find another publisher for it. So the thread is somewhat accurate. As far as the calls about refunds go, I don't know, didn't pre-order yet. But I knew it would come out, just never knew exactly when until lately.

Its not true anymore though as Atari has done picked it up and its now set for a June 16-17th release, and its going to be all shades of awesome.

I am with you. I loved this show and movies as a child. Had the toys to go along with it.

When TMNT came out I was just as stoked. But was very disappointed in the game.

Hopefully this one happens to come out on time [15 days from now!] and is a good one!
