|Official Press Release|
GN: The last game had a great plot and could very much be considered canonical. Will this game fit well into the Ghostbuster's official
Atari: That's our hope with this story. We think fans of the movies, the last game, and the comics will like it.
GN: If a third game is ever made, would you like to see it be like the first, second, or would you rather try yet another genre?
Atari: We haven't settled on anything yet, but we're definitely talking about more Ghostbusters games. The world of the Ghostbusters is a fun place to play in, and we feel that it could support several different genre.
GN: Outside of promoting this game, what other projects are you working on right now?
Atari: There are several unannounced games in the works. I look forward to telling you more about them very soon!
END OF INTERVIEW: The rest of this article is solely the opinions and musings of Ryan Johnson.First, thanks to Jonathan Moses for taking the time to answer my questions. I had a few other questions that they were unable to comment on that circles the rest of the franchise and the potential for upcoming films, as the team at Atari don't have anything to do with anything other than the games. At one time, the writers of the original film had other ideas for a third, and it had been said that a good deal of the plot points from that film made it into the first current-generation Ghostbusters game. But websites still abound with talk of a third movie, perhaps with the original team taking a leadership role over a group of rookies. Wouldn't it be awesome if one day that came true and the rookies in the game matched the film? Overall, the guys at Atari are proud to say that this game fits into Ghostbusters lore and canon. I am very excited about the story being more "today" than in the original era: as much as I love the original team, a fresh take on a classic formula could be a great fit to see if the series can thrive in modern society.
