Harrison hopes to prove Acti wrong over Ghostbusters
Atari president Phil Harrison, speaking to MCV, has said he sincerely hopes to prove Activision boss Bobby Kotick wrong over Ghostbusters.
The action title was of course dropped when Activision merged with Vivendi to create Activision Blizzard, boss Kotick revealing the title was cut-loose as the publisher don't believe it can become a series worth over 100 million USD.
"What Bobby, perhaps unhelpfully said, was that those games were franchises which wouldn’t make $100m of revenue and generate sequels," Harrison says.
"If that’s his benchmark, then fine – and we’d love to aspire to the same benchmarks. But you know what? I would love to turn Ghostbusters into a $100m franchise, just to prove him wrong."
The game will be released in 2009.
