The Song's Over For 'Guitar Hero'
February 9, 2011 at 5:37 PM (PT)
ACTIVISION has confirmed that it will stop making the "Guitar Hero" video game, MSNBC.COM reports. In a statement, the company noted that "due to continued declines in the music genre, the company will disband ACTIVISION PUBLISHING's 'Guitar Hero' business unit and discontinue development on its 'Guitar Hero' game for 2011."
Observers aren't that surprised by the announcement as the most recent update, "Guitar Hero: Warriors of Rock," couldn't stop the sales slide.
ACTIVISION has yet to announce its plans for the future of the mixer videogame, "DJ Hero," even though it previously downsized the developer FREESTYLE GAMES.
