You all need to sit tight and wait to watch the Dead Flip stream of GOT to get a sense of what kind of effort is potentially going into Ghostbusters. If the GOT update was just a few piddly fixes, I don’t think you’d be seeing Dead Flip make an event out of it.
Also, Dwight’s been working on Spike II games for a while, getting back to Spike I is probably a little different workflow he needs to get used to, let him resharpen the saw on GOT and then totally kick ass on the GB update I say.
Also, who’s to say GOT updates didn’t get done a long time ago and just got stalled during regression testing and fix phases to finally get it out the door now.
Rolling out code later in a products life is a little more sensitive, and requires a lot more testing. You obviously don’t want to rush the update and then discover some condition you missed in testing and suddenly the code is blowing node boards, or breaking scoring, etc.
Also on fattdirk’s point about an IP being hot....GB 3 is currently filming. There will be renewed interest in Ghostbusters for sure over the next year.
