The developers of the official Ghostbusters video game have gone bankrupt just three days after the game was released, it has been revealed.
The company, which was founded in Irvine in 2011, had failed to establish itself properly in the video game industry and had not produced a high profile multi-platform game before.
The game was reportedly developed in under 8 months and has received a dismal Metacritic score of just 31/100.
The game’s lack of success might have been somewhat inevitable considering the failure of the Ghostbusters remake on which it is based, with the film opening to empty theatres across the US and official merchandise being placed on sale racks before the film was even released.
Breitbart Tech editor Milo Yiannopoulos’s criticism of the film for its social justice narrative also led to a Twitter spat with actress Leslie Jones which resulted in him being permanently banned from the platform, known for its disdain of conservative media.
