Sony has negotiated a shock 11th-hour deal to publish the official Ghostbusters game throughout PAL territories in June.
The platform holder is the third publisher the game has had in the last 12 months. The title was previously owned by Vivendi before its merger with Activision, and then by Atari.
A Sony spokesperson told MCV this morning: We will be releasing the title on June 19th, for PS3 and PS2, to co-incide with the release of the Blu Ray movie from Sony Pictures.” A PSP version will follow from Sony in the Autumn.
MCV has learnt that the title will still arrive on Xbox 360, DS and Wii, published by Atari. A rep from the publisher told MCV these SKUs will arrive "later this year".
UPDATE: Atari is committed to maximizing the launch of the Ghostbusters videogame across Europe,” said Jim Wilson, VP worldwide marketing at Atari.
In partnership with both Sony Pictures Consumer Products, Inc and Sony Computer Entertainment Europe, we have a unique opportunity to add new game products and expand marketing opportunities to reach Ghostbusters fans in Europe.”
