Finally, it's happening: a Ghostbusters game for new gen consoles. Activision and Sony are teaming up to bring us Ghostbusters the game, not be confused with Ghostbusters: Scantum of Slime from back in 2011.
This Ghostbusters game isn’t connected with the new movie, and therefore won’t have any of the main cast members in it. Instead, this third person RPG will require you to lead a team and save New York City. Your team may be AI, or can include other players via co-op multiplayer.
Activision released this general statement about the game:
“Ghostbusters is a third-person action role-playing game positively charged for thrilling couch co-op with up to four players locally. As rookie Ghostbusters, players can level up their characters’ gear and abilities by tackling objectives, defeating ghastly creatures and discovering hidden collectibles in Manhattan’s most haunted haunts. There are four heroes to choose from, and each has his or her own unique personality and play style, bringing special strengths to support the team.”

This new Ghostbusters game is coming this summer, July 12th. It will available on all platforms, and even mobile (eventually).
