Originally released in 2009, Ghostbusters: The Video Game is receiving a high resolution makeover. Sabre Interactive, the studio behind World War Z, will be developing the remastered version of the game. Terminal Reality produced the original game before going out of business in 2013.

The game stars Bill Murray, Harold Ramis, Dan Aykroyd, and Ernie Hudson all reprising their original roles. It was co-written by original franchise writers Dan Aykroyd and Harold Ramis. The game takes place in 1991, about two years after the events of Ghostbusters II.

The remastered game is part of Sony Pictures Ghostbusters 35th anniversary event, featuring a year-long celebration of the franchise. On June 11, 2019, special limited-edition versions of Ghostbusters and Ghostbusters II will be released on 4k UHD and Blu-ray. The discs will contain previously unreleased bonus material.

The original Ghostbusters film will be shown again in theaters nationwide on October 6 & 10, 2019. The film was originally released in theaters on June 8, 1984. Stores will also receive a wide variety of Ghostbusters themed merchandise including toys, shoes, and jewelry.

After decades in development, Ghostbusters 3 is finally being produced. The film is said to feature most of the original surviving cast and is being co-written by Aykroyd.

Unfortunately, original cast member and co-writer Harold Ramis passed away in 2014. Although, considering Aykroyd and Ramis had been working together for nearly 30 years on a potential sequel, it is possible that many of Ramis’ ideas will end up in the final script. The sequel will be directed by Jason Reitman, son of the original two films’ director Ivan Reitman.

Ghostbusters: The Video Game Remastered will be released for the Playstation 4, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch, and PC sometime in 2019. An exact release date has not yet been announced.
