The game will allow the players to work alongside the original Ghostbusters in a brand new storyline. The game will feature the signature technology, humor and characters from the franchise, along with brand-new adversaries and upgrades to their ever-expanding arsenal.

“Working with the Ghostbusters franchise has been a tremendous opportunity for us, and one which has stretched us creatively,” Mario Wynands, Managing Director of PikPok, shared. “Being able to marry the iconic characters, world and humour of Ghostbusters with the unique gameplay and storytelling experience of Into the Dead 2 we hope will be a welcome addition to the Ghostbusters canon.”
