Ghostbusters Sequel Coming in Video Game Form, Original Cast and Writers Heavily Involved

The latest entry in the Ghostbusters franchise will be arriving in the form of a video game for PC, PlayStation 2, PlayStation 3, Xbox 360, and Wii.

Writing duties for the title are being handled by Harold Ramis, Dan Aykroyd, and Bill Murray. All three starred in the first two films, which were written by Ramis and Aykroyd. The trio will also lend their voices to the game, which is currently being developed by an unknown studio. The project was unveiled through Game Informer's teasings of its next issue.

Many consider Slovenia-based developer ZootFly a likely candidate for the game's developer. Earlier this year, the company leaked a number of prototype movies from an unlicensed Ghostbusters game that was in the works for Xbox 360.

However, ZootFly confirmed that it was no longer developing the Ghostbusters game in a recent interview with Gamer.TM, as another company purchased the license from Sony. That other company is said to be Universal, a tidbit Aykroyd accidentally revealed while talking to the Edmonton Sun.

Chris Faylor was previously a games journalist creating content at Shacknews.

      Also, I'm a bit floored that Murray, Ackroyd, and Ramis are involved. That's just awesome! What happened to the fourth Ghostbuster though?

      Ghostbusters for the genesis was the best game, I loved ti soo much and still play it on a emulator.

      Now if they could make it third person, a shit load of gear, have alot of awesome animated ghost and a good game engine it should rock.
