Looks kinda similar to Sanctum of Slime from what little they showed.

I wish they'd talk to Firaxis and get a Ghostbusters game made in the style of the new X-Com games, or perhaps make another game with the same mechanics as "The Video Game" as that had a very satisfying simulation of using the equipment.

It at least matches the movie then.

Why couldn't they have made another one like the 2009 game? That was really good.

This looks horrendous!

"Ghoul School." Really?

Although I did like how Slimer looked.

All the female character models look like Zarya from Overwatch.

This game seems like it had a rushed development cycle.

I'll hold out for the inevitable Lego version that adapts all three films.

Bonus levels based on REAL and EXTREME are also musts.

I get why they go low-budget on movie-based games, but this looks like it might as well be mobile.

I certainly like the idea of a game where you building your own team by using team-members from other incarnations (probably not what this will be), but it gotta be more then just the current two movie teams, add Extreme, or wait it out until the All-Boyz Busters new movie is out so we can have more characters to choose from.

Actually, that project got canned: http://bloody-disgusting.com/news/3383897/russo-brothers-ghostbusters-confirmed-dead/

I think one of the mobile games actually does that.

Apparently, one of the people who worked on it was one of the creators of the Genesis game Boogerman. Go figure.

is it really surprising? It is a tie-in game by Activision.

When exactly did they get the reputation of being such a sucky developer?

Skylanders (from hardcore Spyro fans, anyways), some of their Spider-Man games, their TMNT games, Tony Hawk Pro Skater 5, etc.

Quite some time ago. Been hot garbage for a few years now.

Looks like the developers are about to go belly up.

Sad. I remember their glory days on PC with games like MechWarrior and such. Good times.

Activision is literally just known for Call of Duty nowadays. Everything else they make has either bombed recenty like Tony Hawk and Guitar Hero or licensed crap. They have Destiny too but Bungie makes that.

Activision does have a proud history, even though they are primarily thought of as a soulless publisher these days.

One thing I appreciate about their history that many people seem to forget is how innovative their 2000 3D Spider-man game was for Playstation & N64 (later ported to Dreamcast). It was buggy and very hard to fight the camera in closed spaces, but it was just about how everybody thought 3D Spidey should be like. They made a console sequel and polished up the engine a bit for the 2002 movie adaptation game (played that a ton on PC), and then they completely overhauled the concept with Spider-man 2 (movie tie-in), which at the time was heralded as one of the best superhero games ever made for its free-roaming layout. Very unexpected for a big budget movie adaptation.

The GBA games that they worked on with Vicarious Visions have a pretty solid track record for the most part.

Activision used to live in such a nice neighborhood (i.e., development studios)! They musta fallen in with a bad crowd sometime around the turn of the last decade.
