Paul Feig really is an idiot.

 In February 2022, SONY will release a Ghostbusters boxset containing Ghostbusters, Ghostbusters 2, and Ghostbusters Afterlife.

I guess I'll have to mansplain this to poor Paulie...
Let's ignore the fact that the movie flopped and it panned... No, it wasn't because "misogynerds ruined it". The movie was bad and it was a different continuity than fans wanted. But let's pretend it wasn't bad. Let's imagine it was a good movie... it still wouldn't have made it. Why is that?
The same Reason These guys didn't make it either

These guys were Ghost Busters before we had Ghostbusters. Just like the 2016 Ghostbusters is completely unrelated to the 1984 Ghostbusters.
The Boxset is celebrating the adventures of Stantz, Spengler, Venkman, and Zeddemore as Ghostbusters.

Excluding 2016 from this boxet is not a slight against Feig. That would be like sayong that the Nolan Trilogy needs to include Batman and Robin for the simple reason that it's a Batman movie made by the same studio.

Ghostbusters has multiple continuities and 1 of those was heavily ignored: The Cartoon Continuity. It still follows Stantz, Spengler, Venkman, and Zeddemore, yet it's not part of the set.

Continuity A:
Ghostbusters, Ghostbusters 2, Ghostbusters Afterlife 

Continuity B:
Ghostbusters, The Real Ghostbusters, Extreme Ghostbusters 

Continuity C:
Ghostbusters, Ghostbusters 2, Ghostbusters the Videogame

Continuity D:

SONY is making movies out of Continuity A. Only things from Continuity A will be made part of it. That means No Videogame, no cartoons, and no 2016 movie.
