Activision: 'Never say never' on future DJ/Guitar Hero

Music games could make a comeback down the line, says firm

Yesterday, Activision announced plans to disband its Guitar and DJ Hero business unit and discontinue development of games planned for 2011, but the publisher hasn't completely ruled out the possibility of releasing future Hero titles.

Asked about the chances of this happening, the company said:


"We can never say never, but over the past two years we have seen rapid declines in the music genre, and unfortunately, based on current demand, we simply cannot continue to profitably make these games given the considerable licensing and manufacturing costs."

Activision also confirmed that it has no plans to release new DLC for Guitar/DJ Hero beyond what has already been announced, although it will continue to offer older DLC packs for sales and continue customer service support for the games.
