A marketing blitzkrieg is on its way for Ghostbusters, which is not surprising, given that this is the year of the anticipated franchise reboot. And part of that marketing tidal wave appears to include a video game tie-in.
Retail Merchandiser (via IGN) is reporting about the numerous tie-ins set to come alongside this year's feature film. Part of that will include "a new full-fledged 'Ghostbusters' video game from Activision will release alongside the movie on the Xbox One and PlayStation 4" that will release separately from the Ghostbusters tie-in that's already releasing for last year's LEGO Dimensions.
Shacknews has reached out to Activision for comment, but such a move would not be unprecendented. Activision has not shied away from tie-in games, having previously worked with Transformers and the upcoming Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Mutants in Manhattan.
For a look at a more vintage Ghostbusters effort, let's revisit a recent Shack's Arcade Corner.
