Posted on February 9, 2011, Phil Hornshaw Rumor: Activision Kills Guitar Hero, DJ Hero Series

This just in from Eurogamer: Activision has axed Guitar Hero. It’s dead. At least, that’s the rumor according to unnamed sources.

The site is reporting that Activision also is slashing through DJ Hero developer Freestyle Games with huge layoffs, and that the GH series has been canceled, along with DJ Hero and True Crime.

Activision had previously confirmed Guitar Hero titles for this year, despite the terrible sales of Guitar Hero: Warriors of Rock. Seems like that’s probably no longer the case. An announcement of the layoffs and the future of the series and Freestyle Games is expected to come tonight.

We’re trying to get an official comment from Activision right now, so stay tuned for further developments.
