Variety has reported that Atari has picked up the rights to Ghostbusters and Chronicles of Riddick: Assault on Dark Athena. The former is slated for a summer 2009 release to coincide with the movie's 25th anniversary, while the latter is set for a spring 2009 launch. Variety's Ben Fritz writes:

"Deal is one of the most significant for Atari since it came back from the brink of bankruptcy earlier this year by securing new capital funds and recruiting an experienced team of videogame execs."

It's not surprising that these games, both of which sport high-profile licenses, found a new home. What's surprising is that they ended up with Atari. Ex-Sony executive and current Atari president Phil Harrison has indicated that the company would focus on online and social gaming experiences. Picking up two traditional console titles doesn't really fit into that strategy. That said, Harrison is a very smart and very tall (and very bald) man. He has a distinguished history as a videogame exec and knows what he's doing.
