Activision has been developing a new Ghostbusters video game, which is set to launch this July. The game is set to arrive on PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC.

The launch of the game is set to coincide with the new Ghostbusters movie, which hits theaters on July 15. A mobile Ghostbusters game is also slated to launch in July on iOS and Android, including Amazon's Kindle hardware.

Back in January, Tech Times reported that Activision was working on a new "full-fledged" Ghostbusters game. Activision has officially announced the game, but first confirmed it with USA Today.

"USA Today can exclusively announce that Activision will release the four-player role-playing game on July 12 (to coincide with the Sony film's July 15 release) for Playstation 4, XBox One and Windows PC via Steam," writes Carly Mallenbaum. "The game, which takes place after the events of the new movie, features a new cast of male and female rookies who are called upon to keep New York City safe."

Beyond its platforms and game type, RPG, there were no other details available about the game.

This won't be a AAA, or big budget game, going by the looks of it, and that's understandable when considering it's meant to tie into the movie.

However, it could find some success if it isn't too ambitious. It is arcadey enough for quick drops into the game and when priced low enough, impulse buyers of all budgets can afford to be burned, if it really is lacking in the fun department.

Activision also handed over a trailer of the game to USA Today, which can be viewed below:

The previous Ghostbusters game was developed by now defunct Terminal Reality and was published by Atari. It was released in 2009 on PS2, PS3, PSP, Xbox 360, Wii, DS and PC.

That game was a third-person shooter that had a single player campaign on all platforms, while offering an additional online co-op mode for PS3 and Xbox 360. The game wasn't a chart topper, though it came close at one point, but Terminal Reality and Atari considered it a success.
