Last week, video game giants Activision Blizzard announced it would be picking up five newly acquired properties as a result of the July merger with Vivendi Games: Crash Bandicoot, Spyro the Dragon, Ice Age, Prototype, and one unannounced game. But guess what’s getting dropped?

A number of high-profile Vivendi Games titles in development — including Ghostbusters, a big-budgeted action-adventure hybrid based on the movie of the same name, and Brutal Legend, a rock n’ roll fantasy epic created by famed designer Tim Schafer — will not see the light of day or must be shopped to another publisher.

Other Vivendi Games casualties of the merger include Chronicles of Riddick: Assault on Dark Athena, Wet, 50 Cent: Blood on the Sand, World at Conflict: Soviet Assault, Leisure Suit Larry: Box Office Bust and Zombie Wranglers, along with many Xbox Live Arcade titles.
