Here's the press release:
New crossover board game, conceived by Sony and IDW, to headline extensive plan to develop games for both franchises in 2019.

San Diego, October 30, 2018: IDW Games and Sony Pictures Consumer Products today announced plans to develop a series of tabletop games for both Men in Black and Ghostbusters franchises including, for the first time, a crossover miniatures board game featuring both Men In Black and Ghostbusters. The multi-year agreement comes ahead of the new Men In Black movie set for June 2019 and Ghostbusters celebrating its 35th Anniversary in June 2019.

Currently under development, Men In Black/Ghostbusters: Ecto-terrestrial Invasion will be a miniatures loaded board game featuring the world’s foremost protectors teaming up to take down a threat unlike any they have faced before. Making up the Ghostbusters team will be Peter Venkman, Egon Spangler, Ray Stanz, and Winston Zeddmore, and the MIB team will consist of Agent J, Agent K, Agent L and Zed. While these two teams have faced unearthly threats before, the strength of the Ecto-terrestrials is nearly overwhelming, but that doesn’t mean there can’t be a little friendly competition.

With all new character designs by fan-favorite artist Derek Laufman and innovative game design by Panda Cult Games (Wander: The Cult of Barnacle Bay), Men In Black/Ghostbusters: Ecto-terrestrial Invasion features a blend of fast action dice-chucking, take-that card play, and highly detailed sculpted miniatures from Ninja Division (Super Dungeon Explore).

Jerry Bennington, IDW Publishing’s VP of New Product Development says “We are excited to bring these two iconic properties together along with an amazing group of development partners. We love the fun story we are telling with this game and hope fans will bring it to the tabletop again and again.”

Men In Black/Ghostbusters: Ecto-terrestrial Invasion miniatures board game will release in late 2019. Additional stand-alone games for each franchise are also currently in development and slated for release next year.

No idea how this play but what's interesting is both properties have movies this year. The MIB / jump Street cross over is cancelled but Sony wanted a shared universe. Could both films tease more in future like post credit scenes ect... Or just a nice bit of merchandise? I'm now curious

Love the art though lol

Yeah this is another thing that really took me by suprise when it was announced. I am looking forward to getting this so I can read the story they put together for the game. :)

The Ghostbusters franchise is really on a role when it comes to announcements from out of left field. This Game the upcoming comic event which may very well lead to a volume 4 and or more spin off comics and to top it off the announcement of a new movie. Wow what a rush! :):):)

It happens. This Gen. area has become a catch all for a lot of topics besides the 2 original movies so it's easy to miss certain threads. I'll file a report and maybe Kingpin can merge.

Just an fyi, about the Premium Puzzle that came out last year.
https://www.amazon.com/Ghostbusters-Ect ... 07QTPGQ61/

For some reason, Amazon generated a second listing for a September release.

I asked IDW Games and they are not sure but it's not anything new. It has not gone back to print and no new release is scheduled.

I wasn't really a fan of the gameplay of that one. Looks great, though.
Not sure but speaking of, the second board game from Cryptozoic had a Firehouse dice tower, too, but it was an add-on.
