    They should bomb Conflict: Soviet Assault. That particular brand of games has always sucked. They suck so much that I have to compare it to a black hole as far as their suckiness goes.

    I really really hope not. I was looking forward to this more than Silent Hill 5 as my halloween game.

    I didnt think it was canceled either. Just a few weeks ago, Yahoo did a story on it because of who is doing some of the voice work.

    Yeah I heard about this from a ghostbusters forum I occasionally check out. Activision doesn't want to do it anymore or something like that, but Im going to assume that Sony is just gonna find someone else to release. It's not dead completely.

    With all the buzz around this game if Activision doesn't publish it someone will. Dropping a game with so much money already put into it would be stupid. The licensing fees and the original cast doing voice acting and writing (Dan "Ray Stantz" Aykroyd and Harold "Egon Spengler" Ramis) had to cost a pretty penny. Odds are the game will be published. Either that or some companies like to throw away money.

    Yeah, it was on demo at SDCC. Game's almost finished, and it would be extremely foolish to give it the ax now.

    This game is NOT being cancelled! After getting the voice talents of the actors and paying big major bucks to get the licence this would never happen.

    However they are killing a few titles here they are, there could be more later.

    Considering how cutthroat the console wars are, sony needing a WOW title to get more gamers, throwing this game away would be like releasing Jaws Unleashed- pure insanity.

    1000th POST. whew.....only feels like 250...lol.

    It's coming out in 2009 now to coincide with the film's 25th anniversary. Sony Pictures are helping find a new publisher for the game.

    So Activision does not want to publish this game? I thought this one of their new big titles, so they are just going to give up that developer to whom ever sony can find.
