Idiots.

Those little Ghostbusters virals shook the internet some time back. Everyone wants it. Also, the Riddick games were highly praised in the game press. Very cool games.
And Brutal Legend would have something to do with Jack Black right? More awesomeness.

I'm sure Nintendo will cancel their next Zelda after this

So they want to focus on kiddy games?

I'm certain nobody's going to miss the 50 Cent game, Zombie Wranglers (never heard of it till now) and Leisure Suit Larry, but I was quite looking forward to Ghostbusters.

It had reached a playable stage, so it couldn't have been that far off of release - and judging by the reactions of a lot of those comments, it probably would have sold a fair bit too.

This sucks no end.

Those are some big name games that are quite far along development wise. Surely someone will pick them up and run with them so that I might quench my Tim Schafer/proton pack thirsts.







right?

[UPDATE]: A Sierra Games representative told GameSpot he couldn't speak about all the titles on the list in need of a publisher, but stressed that Ghostbusters is "absolutely not canceled."

Not sure this is such a smart move by Activision, but that's their call I suppose. At any rate,like the article said, they do have studios that weren't included in this little deal such as Blizzard...so some of those titles may end up there.

It's all part of the plan to make Activision the new EA. Playing safe and release almost entirely sequels... I'm not exactly shocked by the news, wasn't following any of these games anyway.

I read somewhere that Tim Schafer says that Brutal Legend will continue and be taken up by another publisher. In any case, it won't be affected.

Confermed on the Doublefine website. Too bad nobody has any idea how far the game is in production because all Tim talks about is dead weevils in his Kashi Oatmeal.

This makes no sense, Ghostbusters was at E3 and it was an amazing game from what I saw and heard how could you even consider dropping a game like that for Crash Bandicoot Bleh! That's kind of really dumb, but I'm sure someone is going to make a load of cash off of Ghostbusters cause that game isn't going to die.
