Epic Games designer Cliff Bleszinski has said his goodbyes to the Guitar Hero franchise, in his typically frank fashion.
Broadcasting to the Twitter community, the Gears of War designer wrote:
"You can have an IP that you lovingly care for and release every so often that can last forever, or one you ride hard into the ground."
Cliff signs off '#ripGH' (R.I.P. Guitar Hero).
Activision announced the closure of its Guitar Hero and DJ Hero business division last night, as well as the cancellation of both of this year's in-development music titles.
Asked in an official Q&A if we'll ever see new instalments in the series again, Activision said: 'never say never'.
