The new Ghostbusters game will release sooner than expected

Ghostbusters was first introduced back in 1980, becoming one of the most popular franchises that are still talked about among the fans, even after almost 30 years of its long-running duration. The fame hasn't blurred, which was quite evident with two new movies that were somewhat recently released, the most recent was Ghostbusters: Afterlife.

Other than the Ghostbusters movies, we also have various Ghostbusters games, going from Ghostbusters: The Video Game (by Saber Interactive) to the Ghostbusters (2016) video game (by FireForge Games). The Ghostbusters: The Video Game by Saber Interactive even got a remaster in 2019.

Now it has been suggested that another Ghostbusters game is most certainly in development. This news has come from none other than Winston Zeddemore himself, Ernie Hudson, who was part of the very first film in the Ghostbusters franchise.

Read on to find out all there is to know about the new Ghostbusters game and its release.

New Ghostbusters game is in development

Winston Zeddemore (aka Ernie Hudson) has affirmed that another Ghostbusters game is most certainly in development and will be based around the classic team of Ghostbusters: The Video Game Remastered (2019) and Ghostbusters: Afterlife film (2021).

In the Celebrity Fan Fest held in San Antonio, Texas, a Q&A session was conducted and Ernie Hudson made an appearance during that event, where he affirmed that "we’re doing another video game". As per the Countdown City Geeks YouTube channel, Hudson revealed that he and Dan Ackroyd are recording for the new Ghostbusters game soon.

Hudson said, "I just got an e-mail because we’re doing another video game. They’re scheduling it now to do the recording, and I’m not too sure who going to do it, I know me and Danny (Dan Aykroyd), I think."

Adding to it, Hudson revealed that he wasn't sure about Bill Murray's involvement this time, and he said, "I’m not sure about Billy (Bill Murray) will do anything on it. So, there will be another video game."

New Ghostbusters game release date and characters

Further talking about the new Ghostbusters game, Hudson remarked that he is still unaware of the new Ghostbusters game release date, yet the developers (apparently Illfonic) are sending him models of his character to endorse.

Hudson said, "They’ve been sending me prototypes of the character to get the image right, which they seem to have a hard time somehow creating my image. It’s so weird to me that they can get Bill Murray, and Dan Aykroyd, and Harold Ramis to look exactly like they look, but I end up looking like Eddie Murphy or somebody."

This particular statement made it clear that players will get to see all of the first team members from the 1984 film, so we can probably assume that it would be some kind of a tribute to Harold Ramis who passed on in 2014, though he was a significant part of Ghostbusters: Afterlife film as well.

For many fans the new of a new Ghostbusters game being in development might not be new as back in October, it was revealed that Illfonic (the creator of Predator: Hunting Grounds and Friday the 13th: The Game) is working on a new Ghostbusters game, which will probably be a co-op multiplayer game similar to other titles under the studio.

The rumor about llfonic working on a new Ghostbusters game came directly from Raphael Saadiq (co-founder of llfonic) during the Questlove Supreme podcast.

Illfonic actually hasn't authoritatively reported that a new Ghostbusters game is being developed by them, yet this multitude of informal affirmations and leaks suggest that fans will not have to wait for long to the official selection about the same.

But whatever the case with these rumors might be, remember that nothing is certain until an official announcement is made. So don’t get your hopes up too high.
