Will Sony save the day?

The Activision – Blizzard restructuring had many casualties. One of them was Ghostbusters. Sierra said that the project was not totally dead, but would be shopping it around for a new publisher. We’ll look into who is inquiring about the title.

Variety is reporting that Sony Pictures is looking at what could be done with the game including marketing it with the 25th anniversary of the original release.

Quotes after the jump.

A Sony Pictures spokesperson is quoted by Variety as saying it is working with Activision Blizzard “to evaluate various options surrounding the release of the Ghostbusters video game”.

“This has presented [Sony Pictures] with an opportunity to re-evaluate the game release marketing strategy to potentially coincide with the 25th anniversary of the original film in ‘09.”
