Atari announced the official release date for the much anticipated Ghostbusters: The Video Game.

“On June 16, 2009 the all new adventure inspired by the hit film franchise will release across North America,” said Nicole Tubman, a publicist for Atari.

“Ghostbusters: The Video Game, is written by original Ghostbusters writers and stars Harold Ramis and Dan Aykroyd and reunites many of the original cast members including Bill Murray and Ernie Hudson to recapture the unique blend of humor and fright that established Ghostbusters as a pop culture sensation,” Tubman said. “In addition, the game will also coincide with the original motion picture’s 25th anniversary and launch Tuesday, June 16, 2009 with Sony Pictures Home Entertainment’s worldwide debut of the original motion picture on Blu-ray Disc.”

Ghostbusters is coming for PlayStation 3, PlayStation 2, Xbox 360, Wii, DS, and Windows. This is by far the biggest project Atari has taken on since it moved from a development house to a distribution-only shop last year.
