When Sabre Interactive re-produced Ghostbusters The Video Game, the cooperative multiplayer game was not included when it was released 10 years after the original release of Terminal Reality in 2009.
As Matt McKnight, Sabre’s vice president of business development, said VCs At the time, the original multiplayer game was the work of an independent studio, based on an incomplete version of the game. In addition, Saber also found 6 different versions of the multiplayer game code, and could not know which one shipped. The decision was made to exclude the multiplayer game from being remade at launch, but whether it will be added later is still up in the air because Saber is “still in the process of evaluating the situation.”
Now it seems to have been confirmed as dead in the water.Speaking of MP1st, Sabre’s Chief Creative Officer Tim Willits said: “This is something the team really wanted to add to the remake a few years ago, and has been trying, but unfortunately, the state of the original multiplayer code just doesn’t cooperate. We I did research it, but ultimately had to focus on recreating the single player experience that fans expected of us.”
At the same time, Friday the 13th and IllFonic, the creator of Predator: Hunting Grounds, is developing a new Ghostbusters game. It is probably based on the recently released movie “Ghostbusters: Afterlife”, considering their previous work, it is likely to be a purely multiplayer game.
