New Ghostbusters Game in Development for iOS/Android

Sony Pictures Consumer Products has teamed up with Capcom-owned developer Beeline Interactive to create a new Ghostbusters game for iOS and Android devices.

The game is targeting an early 2013 release and will be a “fremium” title based on the movies. “When New York is once again infested with paranormal activity, it is up to the player’s team of neophyte Ghostbusters to clear out every last spook, spirit, and specter,” the press release reads.

“Armed with an arsenal of proton packs and ghost traps, players will be able to upgrade their gear by running experiments, capturing ghosts and acquiring all-manner of strange and exotic slimes. Better gear will give the player access to higher paying jobs and more prestige that they can then invest back into their business. Players will also be able to upgrade their employee roster to create a crack team of specter stomping Ghostbusters.”

Mark Caplan, Sony Pictures Consumer Products VP, added, “Beeline has a proven track record and has been a leader in developing and publishing top-rated game apps. Given our ongoing relationship with them on Smurfs’ Village, they are the perfect partner to carry forward the success of Ghostbusters in the interactive space.”

An ability to go many hours without sleep and a quick wit make him ideal for his role as associate editor at EGMNOW.com. He often thinks back to the days when the very idea of this career seemed like nothing but an impossible dream. Follow him on Twitter @mattyjb89. Meet the rest of the crew.
