Rumour – Activision is working on a new Ghostbusters game

2 min read


Who ya gonna call? SOMEONE ELSE DAMMIT! I’m busy! The words “movie game” and “good” aren’t often paired into the same sentence. But if there’s one exception to the rule, it’s the criminally underrated Ghostbusters video game that Terminal Reality developed back in 2009. Essentially Ghostbusters 3 as told through a Gears of War lens, the adaptation of the cult classic film series had everything.

The original cast reunited, a new story, tons of weapons out of Egon’s workshop and and a co-operative mechanic for wrangling Class Five full roaming vapors. Y’know, the real nasty stuff. Anyway, Ghostbusters: The Video Game was a one-off deal, a reunited mash of ideas and gameplay that we’ll never see in this lifetime again.

But that doesn’t mean that some other Ghostbusters aren’t going to pick up the phone.

According to a report over on IGN, Activision is working on a “full-fledged” Ghostbusters for PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. One that obviously has nothing to do with the paranormal exterminators over in LEGO Dimensions. Apparently still riding high on the massive amount of positive buzz generated from the 2009 game, this Ghostbusters title will be released in time for the upcoming reboot film, around July 15.

A part of me hopes that Platinum is also involved with this, since they seem to be Activision’s go-to developer for quick licensed games lately. Of course, that’s merely a dream, as Platinum is busy with the recently “leaked” Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Mutants in Manhattan. I’m honestly not phased by the possibility of this game being centered on the latest all-female cast of Ghostbusters either. So long as there’s a chance to grab my stick, heat ‘em up, make ‘em hard and show a nimble little minx how we do things downtown, I’m happy.

Something wrong gentlemen? You come here prepared to read the words of a madman, and instead found a lunatic obsessed with comics, Batman and Raul Julia’s M Bison performance in the 1994 Street Fighter movie? Fine! Keep your bio! In fact, now might be a good time to pray to it!

    I missed that last GB game, though I heard good things about it. Would be great if this next one is good! But don’t give us the female cast, dammit, I wanna play as one of the originals!

      Remember it’s all about feminism these days and sexuality so prepare for the worst.

      • Hammersteyn

        They put the Bust in Ghostbusters?

          Twerk the ghosts into submission?

            Is it bad that I actually want to see that?

        I heard a discussion about it the other day again, I have mixed feelings about this whole diversification thing, for instance, everyone complained about The Witcher 3 not being racially diverse, a conversation we’ve probably heard a million times, is that the culture behind the game was European, hence the exclusion, but the conversation I’m referring to was one about the new wolverine…

    • I am a huge Ghostbusters fan; owned it on VHS and watched it till the thing snapped. I am all aboard this all-female cast. As long as it’s good, I’m good.

      • Original Heretic

        Agreed. Though the keywords there are “as long as it’s good”. So many of the reboots they’re making these days are screwing up the classics.

        Only two that are any good are McCarthy and Wiig. Jones is useless and mark my words, you will hear allot of racial “jokes” coming from her. Why didnt they go with someone like Queen Latifa or Regina Hall, they funnier and better actresses than Jones.

      • Jim Lenoir (Banana Jim)

        Shut your dirty mouth, Melissa McCarthy can do no wrong! Just a pity Sandra Bullock isn’t in this one. They were awesome in the Heat!

        • iusedtobe(a)regular

          I dont think I said anything wrong about McCarthy.

          • Jim Lenoir (Banana Jim)

            Sorry bud, I was replying to the Tim, but yeah I agree Queen Latifa would have been awesome.

  • Hammersteyn

    So why don’t they remaster the last one? Everything else has.

  • #GG umm, *run

      Ghostbuster Game?

      • YETH!

            Not much of game that. All goths do is stand around looking bleak. Forget shooting ducks in barrel, goths are way easier targets!
