Illfonic, the developer behind Friday the 13th: The Game and Predator: Hunting Grounds, is apparently working on a Ghostbusters game as its next big franchise title. The most recent game in the franchise was 2019’s Ghostbusters: The Videogame – Remastered, and that was a re-release of a ten-year-old game – so fans are long overdue for a new one.
Considering the enduring popularity of the Ghostbusters franchise, to say nothing of the new movie Ghostbusters: Afterlife out this year, it’s surprising there haven’t been more games released. The 2016 movie got a terrible tie-in, Planet Coaster got Ghostbusters DLC, and we’re still expecting the Fortnite crossover. Out of all of them, Ghostbusters: The Videogame is still the only worthwhile full game release.
Hopefully that’ll change, as it looks like Illfonic is working on a Ghostbusters game – which will presumably be multiplayer if its previous games are anything to go by. This news comes thanks to Illfonic’s co-founder Raphael Saadiq, who let it slip during a recent podcast interview.
