Ghostbusters VR Announced For Meta Quest 2


In a surprise announcement at the end of today's Meta Quest Gaming Showcase 2022, Meta announced today that a new VR game set in the Ghostbusters Universe is currently in development.

Set in San Francisco, Ghostbusters VR has players running their own ghost-busting busting business as they unravel paranormal mysteries. According to the press release, the upcoming title will serve as a "new chapter in the Ghostbusters universe" and not be based on previous adaptations of the IP.

While you can fight off the supernatural yourself, Ghostbusters VR will also provide the option to team up with friends with up to three players joining in as you venture through the game's campaign and save Fan Francisco from ghosts.

Ghostbusters VR will allow players to fend off ghosts with iconic equipment known from the franchise. This includes the proton pack, the tool ghostbusters primarily use to capture ghosts. nDreams, the developers behind Phantom: Covert Ops and Far Cry VR: Dive Into Insanity, have been tasked with developing Ghostbusters VR while Sony Pictures VR will serve as the game’s publisher.

Ghostbusters VR currently does not have a release date, though Meta promised to share more information on the game in the coming months. However, Oculus executive producer Ruth Bram mentioned earlier in the stream today that the games highlighted during the event were slated to come out within the next year.
