Cliffy B says goodbye to Guitar Hero... in typical fashion

Was IP "lovingly cared for" or "ridden hard into the ground"?

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'.
