2007 – Get In The Game
While we chew our nails waiting for news of something – anything – relating to Ghostbusters, moves are quietly afoot on another front.
But while all seems well on the gaming front, the console version of Ghostbusters goes through almost as many false starts and shutdowns as the third film itself.

Then the team working on the game announces that they’re shutting it down. Then, they’re not. Then… Who knows?
Finally, the game is rescued by Atari, which proudly trumpets a June 2009 release date across all platforms.
Fingers crossed, people…
