Phil Harrison’s told MCV he wants to prove Bobby Kotick was wrong to dump Terminal Reality’s Ghostbusters when Activision merged with Blizzard.

“What Bobby, perhaps unhelpfully said, was that those games were franchises which wouldn’t make $100m of revenue and generate sequels,” said the Atari boss.

“If that’s his benchmark, then fine – and we’d love to aspire to the same benchmarks. But you know what? I would love to turn Ghostbusters into a $100m franchise, just to prove him wrong.”

Atari picked up the action game in November.
